''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

I haven't had time to start knitting this pattern yet with all of the Christmas plans we have been doing. Casting on in the New Year!
I haven't started a project yet - but plan to in the coming months.
I haven't started it yet - must finish WIP first! But pattern reads very well and I can't wait to start it!
This is a lovely pattern. It's one you can wear casual or more grown up. Intend to make in more than one color.
This was the first dropped sleeve sweater I’ve done and I was surprised at how much that added to the waist and bust width.
Overall, easy to do, really like the way it finishes the neckline as you knit it.
Easy pattern of lace to follow.
