Notes From the Designer:
•I'm a big fan of comfy, oversized tees, but that doesn't mean they have to be frumpy. A simple lace pattern in the bodice and drop sleeves adds a feminine touch and keeps this top from becoming boring.
•This is a great piece for beginner garment knitters as there is no waist or sleeve shaping, and minimal neck shaping. The front and back pieces are knit flat and seamed, with stitches picked up and worked in the round for the neck and sleeve trim.
•Rated for adventurous beginners and up. This pattern uses simple increases and decreases for the lace section, three-needle bind off for the shoulders, and your preferred seaming method for the side seams.
•Hadi is named after a character from a historical fiction manga called Red River. Set in ancient Turkey, the story revolves around the solidification of the Hittite Empire at the beginning of the Iron Age. Hadi is the eldest daughter of a chief whose tribe is the only tribe that possesses the knowledge of how to make iron, which is a powerful bargaining chip for the Hittites. Hadi is a warrior handmaiden who serves Princess Yuri, and she's one of my favorite characters. I like a no-nonsense female character who can hold her own against all the boys in the sandbox. Hadi is the kind of woman I'd like to be when I grow up: she's comfortable in her own skin regardless of whether she's playing a maiden or a fighter.

Enjoy your knitting!
Although I don’t have the yarn to make this yet, it looks like a really nice sweater to sink my teeth into. I am hoping to make it in the future. I can see myself making a lot of use of a sweater like this.
I usually don't pick any kind of sweater to knit. This one changed my mind. Can't wait to try. Thank you.
Simple pattern to follow. Can't wait to get started
The perfect pattern for such a beautiful sweater. I can't wait to get into it!
This is a beautiful sweater. Thank you for the pattern. I am looking forward to making it. I'll search my EFA stash for some fun fingering yarn.
Lovely! Great pattern!
I haven’t started this yet. I’m a beginner and want to try a few more easy patterns first but am looking forward to making this.
I am thinking to make this for my granddaughter for her birthday.
OOH! This is lovely. Can't wait to dive in this project with some delicious yarns! (Only reason it's 4 stars instead of 5 is I have trouble determining correct size when you start talking about positive and negative ease. Are the dimensions given the size of the finished garment or the body size?)
