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.
