Tea Time Top

 

Tea Time Top in Love of Knitting, Spring 2016

Tea Time Top by Kristen TenDyke in Love of Knitting, Spring 2016

Difficulty Level Experienced

Luxurious yarn, delicate lace, and a flattering silhouette make this sweater perfect for all occasions—even tea with the queen! And it’s easier than it looks. Instead of using decreases, Kristen TenDyke changed needle sizes to achieve the waist shaping, so the lace pattern isn’t affected. Her method for set-in sleeves produces a perfect match between armhole and sleeve cap. You’ll never want to go back to sewing in sleeves after you try this technique.
