Taos, New Mexico, is known for many things, including chile peppers, art, culture, skiing, and an annual fiber festival. The Taos Tee, an airy layer featuring bands of lace diamonds and a generous slit up the side, is inspired by all those things. Wear it to a summer festival over a linen dress, shorts, or your favorite flowing skirt. This tee is worked from the top down in one piece; for the best finishing results, take time to block it to open up the lace pattern.
