Tea Time Top

$ 5.50

This pattern is also available in the Spring 2016 issue of Love of Knitting.
See below for pattern errata. 

Luxurious yarn, delicate lace, and a flattering silhouette make this sweater perfect for all occasionseven tea with the queen! And its easier than it looks. Instead of using decreases, Kristen TenDyke changed needle sizes to achieve the waist shaping, so the lace pattern isn’t affected. Her method for set-in sleeves produces a perfect match between armhole and sleeve cap. You’ll never want to go back to sewing in sleeves after you try this technique.
