Kevät is a lightweight tee for spring featuring lace and colorwork to keep you engaged as you knit. Worked from the top down, this design is intended to be worn with 6-8” 15-20 cm of positive ease, depending on your personal preference, and can be knit to a cropped or standard length. The sample pictured is knit in the cropped length in a size 3, worn with 8” of positive ease.

I used 2 colors of Life In the Long Grass Sport for this design- it is a beautiful, subtly variegated yarn that works so well for showing off both colorwork and lace patterns, as well as being lovely to wear!
