An easy-to-wear long tee, featuring a deep V back neck with twisted cord ties, and simple to knit seamlessly and top down from provisionally cast on shoulders. Stockinette stitch with no body shaping and a textured, drapey yarn focus attention on the details; wide front and deep back neckline are finished with a casual rolled edge, and ribbing forms the short cap sleeves.
Casual for daytime or enough to keep off a little evening chill, Kelpen can also be worn with the V to the front – just omit the ties or tuck them inside.
