Off-the-Shoulder Ruffle Top
The lace is knit first, then stitches are picked up using an ingenious stitch placed at the edge of the lace. A second strip of lace is knit and attached to purl stitches knit into the top below the shoulder. This is a fun knit that you will be proud to wear.
This "cold-shoulder" tee is the perfect flirty summer tee for all ages. The dressy lace details makes it the perfect top for summer parties and evenings out. Knit it without the shoulder lace if you like. It will still be a show-stopper!
When you generate your custom pattern, you can modify the length by entering your preference with the Lower edge to underarm measurement.
Yarn Yardage Requirements
While we would like to offer a simple yarn estimate in our custom patterns, however, the amount of yarn you will need will depend on choices you make like whether to make the garment a cropped or tunic length. We've anticipated that, and we have created charts that allow you to estimate yarn needed based on your choice of weight as well as length. Please refer to our yarn estimation charts and read the article for helpful hints on how to estimate the amount of yarn you will need.
24" to 32" circular needles as indicated by the weight of the yarn used.

2 Stitch Markers
To measure a proper gauge, cast on 40 stitches using the needle size recommended for the yarn. Knit in Stockinette for at least 10 cm. Take swatch off the needles, lay it flat and measure in the center towards the top of the swatch. Knit using suggested needles first. Adjust needle size until you have a swatch that feels soft and drapey without being too loose.
