Inspired by thoughts of long, hot summer days, I dreamt of this loose fitting, cool and comfortable drop sleeve t-shirt, using colours that reminded me of those quintessentially British summer pastimes, cricket and Pimms.
Worked in one piece, bottom up, the t-shirt is then split in to back and front for the armholes and neck shaping. Short sleeves are added on at the end and surface slip stitch crochet is used to add stripe detailing.
