FO: Work + Shelter Lace Striped Tee


Huzzah, a new top! I'm really excited for this one-I wanted a generous fit, and I ended up with about 12 inches of positive ease, and I love it. I'm a huge fan of big on top, tight on bottom, and I am feeling every inch of this baggy knit tee/pencil skirt combo right now.


I knit this pretty much as written, but I skipped the last raglan decrease because I wanted a more generous neckline. I was hoping that this would use up all the rest of this yarn, but I still have most of a skein left. This was a super enjoyable, laid back, easy knit. I love the stripes, and I was always super motivated to get to the next one. Like I said, I'm thrilled with how this ended up, and I'll definitely be wearing it a lot with pencil skirts/skinny jeans/shorts. I have trouble wearing some of my knit garments because they feel too "nice," but this is super comfy and casual, so I should get a lot of wear out of it!


Yarn: Lion Brand Cotton-Ease

  3. That top looks perfect on you! I agree, loose on top, tight on the bottom looks best. I rarely knit clothing, but your version of this pattern makes it so tempting...
