This is the cooler weather version of the Live Wire Tee, this sweater has separate drop shoulder sleeves unlike the knitted on version of the summer Tee. The slashed neck shape finish on this sweater has a neat little rib to match the finish on the sleeve cuff. An option to use the slip stitch neckline version is included in the instructions too.

Chunky Ladder Ribbed hemlines prevent the top from creeping up when wearing. Side slits enhance the different back and front lengths.

A beautiful textured stitch pattern gives this Long Sleeve Tee an interesting visual effect and also lends towards good drape and movement.

To Fit Bust: At Hip:
Small: 81-86cms 100cms
Medium: 91-97cms 110cms
Large: 102-107cms 120cms
X-Large: 112-117cms 130cms
XX-Large: 122-127cms 140cms

Note: This loose fitting sweater is made with 8Ply 100% Cotton on large size 7.0mm needles giving the knit a loose and pliable feel yet with very little opaqueness. The body will β€˜drop’ roughly about 4-5cms then stop at its natural length due to the weight of the yarn and stitch pattern. The gauge will start at around 15 rows per 10cms and then β€˜land’ at roughly 20 rows, this adds to the garment’s appeal.
