Notes From the Designer:

•I’m a big fan of comfy, oversized tees, but that doesn’t mean they have to be frumpy. A simple lace pattern in the bodice and drop sleeves adds a feminine touch and keeps this top from becoming boring.

•This is a great piece for beginner garment knitters as there is no waist or sleeve shaping, and minimal neck shaping. The front and back pieces are knit flat and seamed, with stitches picked up and worked in the round for the neck and sleeve trim.

•Rated for advanced beginners and up. This pattern uses simple increases and decreases for the lace section, three-needle bind off for the shoulders, and your preferred seaming method for the side seams. The pattern includes links to videos for the lace section, seaming and the three-needle bind off technique.

•Watch a video of this pattern here and learn how to work the lace section!

Enjoy your knitting!
