The breezy Golden Tamarin Tee is the perfect summer layering piece. The boxy, cropped silhouette is perfect for high-waisted jeans and skirts, or for throwing on over your favorite sundress. An all-over lace pattern decorates the back and lower front and is balanced out with stockinette stitch on the remainder of the front and the sleeves.

  • The body of this pullover begins with a provisional cast-on and is worked in the round to the underarm, then the front and back are worked separately back and forth. The shoulders are joined using three-needle bind-off, and then sleeve stitches are picked up and worked in the round from the top down. The sleeves, lower edge, and neck edge are finished with an I-cord bind-off.

  • When working the chart after binding off at the underarm, if there are not enough stitches to work a decrease with its corresponding increase, or to work the lifted knot stitch, work these stitches in stockinette stitch instead.
