Voy’s Beach is a top-down knitted sleeveless tee. The lace yoke is knitted sideways and shaped by short rows. The body is picked up from the yoke, knit downwards with a fun colourwork band and slight waist shaping. Short rows at the hem finish the tee with an asymmetrical shape.

Yarn amounts: Approximately 505 (630, 715, 840, 1050) metres / 550 (690, 780, 920, 1150) yards is needed for the main colour (colour A). The 7 contrast colours (B though H) required less than 50 metres / 55 yards each. Any fingering yarn would work; a smoother yarn would give a more draped result, if desired. Sample colours:
