This is the adult version of the Spring Garden Tee pattern for girls. This garment combines the light fluttery lace cap-sleeves of the children’s pattern with a wider neckline and waist shaping to flatter a women’s figure. The construction is simple and enjoyable to knit since it is worked all in one piece from the top down. This feminine tee will be a beautiful wardrobe staple through the warmer months.
(Note: If using a 100% bamboo, silk or cotton yarn, please note that the garment will relax with wear. If you are between sizes, it is advisable for you to choose the smaller size to ensure proper fit.)
Additionally each printed copy includes a scratch-off sticker code for a digital download that will store in your Ravelry library!
