Summer bohemian tee. When we play with lacework, we create textures reminiscent of lace from other eras. Summer allows tees to be worn with lacework creating unique and timeless garments that stand out in our closets.


1 (2, 3, 4, 5) with final measurement of the tee after blocking of 91 (100, 109, 118, 126) cm / 35.75 (39.25, 43, 46.5, 49.5) in.

Do you feel like knitting something different and challenging? That is the Bohemian tee lace top knitting pattern.  Summer lace top or a winter vest with a delicate yarn?

In the knitting pattern you will find the instructions to knit it in five sizes. Sizes 1 (2, 3, 4, 5)  with final measurement of the tee a between 91 and 126 cm / 35.75 and  49.5 in. You can measure a top you really like and choose the nearest size.

This pattern is part of my Mini&Me knitting collection in which you will have the version adapted for the little ones.  If you already have one of the two patterns, use the code that appears on the last page and get the other pattern with a 20% discount. You can check the girl’s top/dress version here.

It is a different pattern, worked vertically. There is no row by row description of the instructions. Lacework is charted and includes row by row description.


I do recommend that you have an intermediate level of knitting, so you don’t get frustrated. The lace is formed with increases and decreases on the right side and the wrong side, so if you are a very beginner, you may find it frustrating and that is the last thing I would like.

The pattern has been tech edited to check for any mistakes and tested by several testers to make sure they could follow it without any problems.

If you want more information go to the construction notes, prerequisites, materials and gauge tabs above.

Happy knitting experience!
