Flowing, simple, and wearable, the Avila Tee is a casual but elegant top for the modern woman. The waterfall side panels are made after the fabric is complete with a drop-stitch technique that looks complicated but is simple enough for novice knitters to create. This tee is worked back and forth in two pieces and seamed.
