Tarry

Stop and smell the roses; linger with the sunset, and tarry awhile. This relaxed tee is meant for lazy mornings, long lunches, and walks in the gentle moonlight. Worked seamlessly from the top down in a cotton and linen blend, it features lacy saddle shoulders for a touch of pretty whimsy, and a smooth stockinette body with matching lace panels at each side, knit seamlessly to the rounded hems. Wear it on gentle, warm days wherever you wander. Techniques & Skills Used: knit/purl, increasing/decreasing, longtail CO, backwards loop CO, short rows, picking up stitches. The lace stitch pattern is both written and charted, and a link to my short rows tutorial is included. Size: 32 (35, 38, 41, 44, 48, 52)” bust; shown in third size with 3” of ease. For a slightly oversized fit, choose a size with several inches of positive ease. Yarn: Knit Picks Cotlin (70% tanguis cotton, 30% linen; 123 yards/50g), shown in Swan; 6 (6, 7, 8, 8, 9, 10) balls, or approximately 625 (700, 775, 875, 975, 1100, 1200) . . .

Wisterious

The pretty lace pattern and slightly boxy fit of this tee make a sweet yet modern sweater. Worked seamlessly from the top down, Wisterious has a simple dolman shape with special details including ribbed trim with invisible tubular edges, shaped sleeve caps, and a feminine I-cord finish with petite buttons and button loops. Both girly and comfortable, Wisterious is a special knit tee to wear any day. Techniques & Skills Used: long-tail CO, knit/purl, lace, short rows, applied I-cord (cable CO); Wisterious is a written pattern, with the lace both written and charted; there is also a video tutorial for the applied I-cord. Size: 33.5 (38.5, 43.25, 48, 52.75)” bust; shown in second size with 3.5” ease. Wisterious is meant to be worn with several inches of positive ease for a drapey and slightly boxy look; if you prefer a more fitted result, be careful not to size down so far that the lace becomes distorted across the bust. Yarn: Sliver Moon Farm Superwash Merino Fingering 8 oz (100% Merino; 1120 yards/230g); 1 (1, 1, . . .
