Seagrove Top


This pattern is part of VERNAL: Collection of warm weather knitwear book. You can also purchase the book here.

Seagrove is a fun tee with clever construction. Worked flat from the center stockinette panel towards the sides in an uncomplicated all-over lace pattern with incorporating neckline shaping, this top assures a comfortable fit and contemporary look. Small details such as the plain stockinette neckband keep Seagrove flattering and easy to style.


The tight twist of Miss Babs Yummy 3-ply along with the yarn’s softness makes this slightly oversized tee suitable for the warm weather without compromising the definition of the stitch pattern.
