Talland Tee – Project Kit

£0

The Talland Tee is a lacy, lightweight summer top with a relaxed fit. It is worked in one piece from the bottom hem upwards, separating for the armholes. Shoulder seams are joined with a Three-Needle Bind Off, so there is no sewing involved. Instructions for the lace pattern are both written and charted.

PATTERN NOTES
The armhole openings have raw edges which will curl under slightly. If you do not like this finish, you may wish to work 5 sts at each edge of the yoke front and back in Garter Stitch to prevent curling.
