Here's the light little top we've been looking for! You can knit it to a cropped hip length, or longer with side vents; in a sport- or light-DK-weight yarn or a lace weight for dressy sheerness. Vent edges and sleeveless armholes have a tidy slipped-stitch edging. You'll wear—and knit—this "tee" again and again.
Tee is worked in pieces and seamed with mattress stitch. Optional bracelet length sleeves are picked up and knitted down from the armhole. The long version has side vents at the hem.
The test knitters both mentioned that this tee knit up very quickly - and both have cast on another!
