This is the adult version of the original Spring Garden Tee pattern for girls. This garment combines the light fluttery lace cap-sleeves of the children’s pattern with a wider neckline and waist shaping to flatter a woman’s figure. The construction is simple and enjoyable to knit since it is worked all in one piece from the top down. This feminine tee will be a beautiful wardrobe staple through the warmer months.
