Want an easy layered look? Try this easy-to-knit tee shirt with a draped neck. Simple enough for beginners, the body is made of one strand of dk-weight linen and one strand of lace-weight linen held together, while the sleeves and neck inset are a single strand of laceweight.
Cool, breathable linen can be machine washed and dried, making it an easy-care wardrobe staple.
