Short Sleeved Top

Mint Tea by Sarah Hatton

Panels of lace diamonds decorate this pretty short-sleeved top by Sarah Hatton. Each diamond has a cluster of wrapped stitches at its centre. The garment is worked in two pieces, with the sleeves shaped as part of the front and back, and finished with a simple neckband and deep armhole edgings. Sarah has used Patons Smoothie DK, which has a soft, silky feel and a subtle sheen, and comes in a wide choice of lovely colours.
