Tulips is a simple top-down tee with an easy ornamental pattern on the chest. It combines the cute with the brave. Pick three colors of tiny leftovers lying around your house and knit the pretty fairisle-and-lace tulips. The top is knit at a drapey gauge thus creating a garment ideal for summer evenings. Perfect when you want to feel beautiful :)
