Pattern Description:

Atalanta is a top down raglan shirt knit in a soft cotton blend, perfect for spring. Atalanta was a princess in Greek mythology, strong and capable and fast of foot. This comfortable and practical garment, loose fitting, but with flattering dart shaping, strikes me as a sort of modern take on something a Greek huntress might wear. The simple lace edging adds a point of interest for the knitter, and creates something a little different than the usual tee shirt
