The second pattern to join to the girls' pattern collection this summer is Fair Weather tee.
The top in the photo above was knitted with Malabrigo Silky merino, which is a singles yarn that creates a light and airy fabric with a little sheen. The yardage is amazing on those skeins too, to make this top you'll only need 3 to 4 skeins of yarn, depending on the size of course.
If you would like to substitute the yarn for something lighter, cotton or pure silk, the yarn amounts are provided in the pattern.
And so, without further ado, please welcome: my Fair Weather Tee!
The top is worked from the bottom up in two parts. Its short sleeves are worked seamlessly with the body. The collar is knitted on after the side and shoulder seams have been joined.
Intermediate – simple increases and decreases, backward loop cast on, lace and simple finishing. MEASUREMENTS
