Advanced Beginner - This pattern is suited to the adventurous knitter with some experience seaming (using mattress stitch and the three-needle BO method) and working in the round.
Notes From the Designer:
•Think of Shala as the sister tee to Hadi: they share the same lace pattern, but are shaped differently.
•Shala is a Dolman style tee with lace at the shoulders instead of the full bodice.
•This piece is knit flat in two pieces and seamed at the sides, with stitches picked up around the neckline and armholes to work the trim in the round.
•A three-needle BO across the top of each sleeve adds strength to the shoulders.
•Shala is my favorite kind of garment construction: simple but structured. You’ll enjoy adding this to your summer wardrobe (and may find yourself wearing it year round!).
•Click the Videos tab to watch a video of how to work the three-needle BO for this pattern. Woop! Another knitting skill under your belt!

Looks like a good project for a first knit top.
Love the colors! Haven't worked with it yet but am looking forward to it based on your other yarns I love.
I love this pattern. Just bought the yarn and plan to start making the sweater.
Love this pattern. Works up easily!
Not done with it yet, but loving the pattern. Very well written.
My girlfriend loves this top. It was just perfect. Thank you so much!
Another great pattern. Can wear causal or dressy
Love this pattern. Instructions easy to follow. Can hardly wait to finish knitting it up.
Beautiful and easy to understand. Can't wait to start!
I love this pattern
Love this pattern
Ooh such a wonderful pattern. I have started this on and the instructions are superb. Knitting up quickly.
What a beautiful pattern. Thought I had enough yarn, but oh well I guess I have to order some more.
I like the classic look of this pattern. I can't wait to start on it.
Love the simple elegance of the pattern and am having a hard time picking which colorway to use!!!
I love that it comes in so many sizes, but given the fact that it's knit flat and not in the round, I doubt I will actually make it. I'm not a fan of seaming. I do have the yarn to make it though so maybe I'll change my mind.
I haven’t made this yet; looking forward to it. Nice pattern.
I absolutely love this pattern, especially the fact that it comes in so many sizes!
