Pattern Description:

fleur Tee: a lightweight Tee or pullover for a cool summer evening or as a layering piece over a shirt.
It is worked with a larger needle size than recommended to obtain an airy, stretchy light weight garment.

This is a versatile pattern that looks very different depending on type of yarn (it works well with coton or linen blends as well) and colors used, going from romantic feminine white to colorful flower power, (you could use eg different colors for the Tee and the flowers).

Fleur Tee is worked top-down with raglan sleeves. Short rows are used to shape the neckline. The lace flowers are worked separately in the round and sewn in afterwards. The flowers are charted with fully written instructions.
The pullover is finished with an I-cord bind off.

I have always been designing all kinds of things : clothes, knitwear, small furniture ... I like to experiment with shapes and textures, always searching for a different approach of constructing a garment. What appeals to me most is using common stitches (knit and purl) and simple, ...
