Granny’s Garden Tee: Camellia Version

This is a fresh take on the Granny’s Garden Tee from April 2016 issue of I Like Knitting. By using only two colors, omitting the picot edge and presenting the flower-head’s in a row, Granny’s Garden is now available with two styling options. And what’s more, it’s two patterns in one!
