Simple Knits: Spring Shirt

Spring shirt
To kick the new year off right, I've decided to share the first of our four 2011 Vest Patterns with you - the Cap-Sleeved Spring Shirt. With the high of the holidays being transformed into the let-down of two more months of snow and cold, I needed a pattern that could be worked up without much thought, and would work both as a warm layer over long-sleeves during cold winter months, but also as a shirt in it's own right during the warmer spring and summer months.

I've knit this pattern in the past and donated the results - it looks gorgeous using any type of yarn, and the pattern is simple enough that even a super new knitter could work through one or two of these shirts! You simply need to know how to cast on, knit, purl, bind off, and knit in the round - all lessons that can be learned in a few hours' time!

In the coming weeks I'll share the Spring Shirts I'll have worked up {you can also find them in my 2011 Knits photo album}, ways to customize this pattern using variegated yarn, adding striping and even cabling, along with some tips and tricks for making these Spring Shirts even easier to knit than they already are! For now, grab your own copy of the pattern and start knitting!
