The light and airy mesh lace adds a delicate border and bodice to this cap-sleeved tee. It can be knit in cotton, linen, rayon, bamboo or any combination for a cool summer top. The longer length is slimming and fashionable over slender or wide-legged pants.

The original design was created in a gauge of 6 stitches and 8 rows per inch in stockinette. However, you can select a yarn from fingering to aran weight if you’d like. Just make sure that you have knit an accurate gauge swatch in the yarn you will be using.
Note: To measure a proper gauge, cast on 40 stitches using the needle size recommended for the yarn. Knit in Stockinette for at least 4 inches. Take swatch off the needles, lay it flat and measure in the center towards the top of the swatch. Knit using suggested needles first. Adjust needle size until you have a swatch that feels soft and drapey without being too loose.
