Effortless summer style in an ultra-wearable silhouette, this fit-focused design is a celebration of the yarns we turn to as the seasons turn.

Gone to Seed evokes ears of wheat, cornsilk, late season Atlantic tides when the water finally warms, and the way sand cools first in the purpling shadows of summer’s fading warmth.

CONSTRUCTION

Gone to Seed is a dolman button-down with a plunging v-neck and lace saddle shoulders. The tee is graded to fit full busts 28-72,” and includes optional instructions for short-row bust shaping in four sizes.

Knitters will begin with two lace panels for the shoulders, which are joined by a back neck panel. Stitches are picked up and worked from the top down for the fronts and backs. Stitches are picked up and ribbed trim is worked for the sleeves and hem. Stitches are picked up and worked in garter stitch for the neckline and button band.
