Summer is peak butterfly season with warm, sunny weather that sends colorful creatures fluttering through our gardens.
Why not take a closer look at them? Let’s grab a lawn chair, a mojito and your favorite cotton-linen blend, and start knitting a summer tee brimming with butterflies.

“Motyle” (Polish for butterflies) is a simple summer tee with an elegant twist. It is knit seamlessly from the top down with short-row neckline and shoulder shaping. Plenty of increases on both front and back make for a smooth, pucker-free transition between the butterfly shoulder strip and the main part of the garment.
The tee got its name from the intricate butterfly-shaped lace pattern featured on the shoulder bands, with a matching detail at the bottom of the front. Hem and sleeve edges are worked in double knitting for reinforcement and to prevent the fabric from rolling.
