So grab a fruity drink, your knitting needles, and get ready to cast on a summer top that will keep you entertained and cool all summer long!
Pink Lemonade is an airy, boatneck, oversized tee that is worked flat in pieces. The front and back begin with a folded hem, and the back is designed to be longer than the front. The sleeves are shaped with increases and a slipped stitch pattern finishes the edge as you knit. The neckband is picked up and worked after the shoulders are seamed.
Kit includes pattern (printed & pdf) and yarn.
