Meet Margareta, this design the namesake of my grand-aunt, dad's aunt. She was not only my grandmother's sister, but her sister-in-law as well! How possible? Sisters of one family married brothers of another! How fun is that, and a bit risky too for relationships overall – but so it goes in matters of the heart.
Margareta is a two-color, short-sleeved tee worked in fingering-weight wool – light and airy for warm days and nights. Its sleeves and shoulders are worked in ribbon lace – an easily mastered 9 stitch by 20 row repeat – in a complimentary color that provides a fresh pop and textural companion – a bit of frosting – to the stockinette stitch simplicity of its lower bodice. This tee is slim-fitting, shaped, and extends mid-hip in length. Worked bottom-up, the lower portion begins as one piece on circular needles, until the starting point of the lace at the underarm where it splits and each side is worked separately.
