Pay What Works: In an effort to find a balance between more financial accessibility and sustainable pricing, I now offer a “Pay What Works” model. This allows for financial flexibility while still valuing and respecting the work and energy I and others provide in the making of this pattern. The price shown on Ravelry is the “true” value of the pattern that best reflects the work put into creating this design.

To purchase the pattern at a price point that is more accessible to you, use the coupon code at checkout listed next to the price point. The prices indicate the price you will pay, not the discount amount. No coupon code is needed for the highest price point.

AROHA1 - $6.00

AROHA2 - $7.20

AROHA3 - $9.60

NO CODE - $12.00

Please note for those located in Europe that VAT is applied at checkout.

The Maia Tee is the result of dabbling in unusual garment construction methods. Diagonal, converging stripes and the bias construction of the body piece accentuate the body’s curves and lines and the sleeve-less mesh give the piece a flirtatious look. This unique tee will make for a fun summer wear!
