  • Theophrastus - T-Shirt

    Theophrastus is a delightful whisper of a T-shirt - light, airy, marled, ruffles. It looks great over jeans as well as skirts, and is, for us, the embodiment of spring in a garment.

    A top-down raglan construction, this top begins with two different coloured strands of lace-weight yarn held together. Amongst the raglan increases is a hidden purl row which serves as the anchor for the double ruffle that will be added later: two ruffles, one in each of the colours of the marled body, knit with two versions of the Old Shale lace pattern, and reminiscent of double rose petals.
