  • Blossom - T-Shirt

    Warm-weather knitwear can be tricky - can this beloved craft of ours actually create something that's cooling and delightful to wear when the temperatures rise? Yes, it absolutely can. In between the slightly cropped, boxy shape, breezy lace accents, and just-deep-enough V-neck, the Blossom T-Shirt has the potential to become your new favorite wardrobe staple.

    It's knit in pieces from the bottom up, and then seamed together. As the short sleeves are worked together with the body, the only finishing that's required is picking up the neckband and topping off the shirt with it's beautifully detailed V-neck!
