This breezy lace yoke lightweight tee is the next edition in my ongoing Summer Knits series; inspired by my desire to wear hand knits year round, even when it is HOT out! (see my Tilly, Tia and Willa patterns) Featuring a lace yoke with built in increases followed by a soothing stockinette body, this piece can become a versatile top for the warmer months where you live! It will quickly become a staple of your warm weather hand knit wardrobe

Notes
This tee is knit in the round from the top down. Short rows are worked across the back for slight shaping. A lace motif decorates the yoke of this simple top. After the yoke is knit, sleeve stitches are put on hold to be picked up and finished with a simple ribbing. The length of both the body and sleeves can be modified, but if you choose to do this you’ll need a little more yarn than the pattern suggests! NOTE: All hems are knit with US 8 (5.0 mm) needles.
