''This Tee was inspired by the luxurious yarn and its beautiful soft sheen. Featuring a feminine lace pattern with a v-neck and dropped short sleeves, this tee has the ultimate amount of drape due to the nature of the yarn. This is an easy, yet engaging knit that is hard to put down once you feel this beautiful silk yarn!'' - Andrea Yetman

A well written pattern. Easy to follow. Have not started yet
I haven’t yet reviewed the pattern, but I have a considerable stash of yarn I hope to knit up into sweaters and so keep my eyes out for lacey and interesting patterns. Mostly I knit lace shawls, but am trying to challenge myself with sweaters this autumn. I love everything lacey!
Just downloaded the pattern, haven’t started yet. It does look lovely.
This pattern is fabulous and the yarn is to die for. I recommend both.
The possibilities for this tee are endless! If you prefer a short variation, I would be so easy to modify. I'd find a nice drapey yarn to really enhance the flow. Maybe looking at a bamboo/silk blend for up close comfort.
