“Who doesn’t love and need the comfort and simplicity of a long sleeved, crew neck T-shirt? Especially a T-shirt enhanced with a Lattice Pattern Stitch for textural detail. This fun-to-knit lace stitch creates an interesting border that contrasts with the Stockinette Stitch of the body fabric. The garment’s silhouette is slightly A-lined in both Sleeves and Body, adding a bit of ease below the waist, for a casual, comfortable fit.

Loft is the perfect yarn for this design, offering a weight that transcends seasons. Corrina is suitable for a cool Midsummer’s Night or layered among others of its kind for a cold Winter’s Tale. Either way, it is highly wearable – whether layered casually or more pulled together with a cashmere sweater and a necklace framing its center neckline detail.” – Ann McCauley


  • Garment is worked in 4 flat pieces: Front, Back and two Sleeves.
