Seagrove is a fun tee with clever construction. Worked flat from the center stockinette panel towards the sides in an uncomplicated all-over lace pattern with incorporating neckline shaping, this top assures a comfortable fit and contemporary look. Small details such as the plain stockinette neckband keep Seagrove flattering and easy to style.

The tight twist of Miss Babs Yummy 3-ply along with the yarn’s softness makes this slightly oversized tee suitable for the warm weather without compromising the definition of the stitch pattern.

Notes
•  This top is worked sideways, starting from the Provisional Cast On (see Assembly Diagram, page 8). First, the Center Front and Center Back are worked separately, then joined and Right Front and Back, followed by Left Front and Back are worked to the sides and the stitches for armhole and side seam are put on hold. Side seams are joined using the 3-Needle Bind Off.
•  Sleeve cuffs are worked in the round, starting from live stitches on armholes.
•  Stitches for the bottom hem are picked up along the bottom edge of the top and worked in the round.
•  Knitters may consider placing stitch markers between chart repeats.
•  Chart is worked back and forth in rows. The Front and Back Body charts are essentially the same but included in the pattern separately for better readability of beginning/end instructions.
•  A circular needle is used to accommodate a large number of stitches.
