Roanoke is a lightweight, loose-fitting tee with casual rolled hems, cap sleeves, and lace detail around the neckline. It's worked in a fingering yarn at a loose gauge for lots of drape. Waist shaping adds a figure-flattering touch.
The tee is constructed seamlessly from the bottom up, in the round to the armholes and then back and forth for the front and the back. Sleeve stitches are picked up from around the armholes and cap sleeves are worked with short-rows.
This pattern is part of the Louet North America Spring 2014 collection! Pictures by the talented Caro Sheridan.

I began designing patterns in 2011. I gravitate toward designs with clean lines and contemporary (but not too contemporary!) stylings. I strive to make my designs available to knitters in as wide a range of sizes as possible.
Things I love: cables, simple lace, strong lines, designs that look far more complicated to make than they actually are, and beautiful, saturated colors complementing each other in stripes or colorwork.
Besides designing, I am also an aspiring fiction writer. I’m working on my third young-adult novel when I’m not knitting as fast as my hands will go.
