Tegna is knitted seamlessly from the bottom up, starting with the slightly flared lace hem, then working up to the armholes, where you separate your work and work the front and back flat.
Knit in fingering weight yarn, this design works equally well in wool, a wool blend or linen. I have doubled the yarn amount the pattern calls for due to the fact that the sweater in the pattern is only 12 inches long. I believe I made mine 27 inches. The amount will vary depending on each student.
