Susan

This is Susan – a warm weather tee, perfect for anytime and anywhere.  I'm wearing it with jeans today.  Yesterday it complimented dress slacks and heels for my daughter's baby shower quite nicely!  This is a top down, mostly seamless knit.  Rib trimming from picked up stitches is worked around its scoop neckline, with a longer variation extending and anchoring its hems.  Sleeves are top down too, then worked in the round, and set in after blocking.  Susan was inspired in part by the new-to-me waterfall lace – a light and airy, easy to remember 4 stitch by 6 row repeat.  Enjoy!
