Kalimotxo is a summer tee worked seamlessly from the bottom-up, with raglan sleeve and neck shaping. Stripes are joined to a seed stitch front band using intarsia, and a slight ‘poof’ is worked into the sleeves for added interest. Pattern includes a shorter version that is cropped at the high hip and a longer version that extends to the hip.

Tee in photo is size x-small. The first photo shows the longer length and the second photo shows the cropped length.

Difficulty Level: Intermediate (pattern uses increases, decreases, and intarsia).
