Honey Bee Tee by This.Bird.Knits

Honey Bee Tee is a fun, fast knit that will quickly become a staple in your hand made wardrobe!

This simple top is knit in the round from the top down. Short rows are worked across the back for slight shaping. The yoke is worked with a simple lace motif. After the yoke is knit, sleeve stitches are put on hold to be picked up and finished with an i-cord edge.

PATTERN AVAILABLE  here (Ravelry link)

Any light weight fingering yarn can be used for this design. We think our Yeavering Bell 4ply with it’s wonderful drape would be a lovely yarn for this project.
