A happy little striped sweater t-shirt, free for you in celebration of Independence Day. This little summery raglan short sleeve is perfect for all those summer barbeques, whether they be on a patriotic holiday (in which case you should totally get a knitter friend to make it’s knitted buddy Stars for their baby. Just imagine the photos!) or on a casual Tuesday afternoon. Keep your babe looking stylish in this little stripey shirt. Everyone will be cooing over your baby, not to mention your crochet skills.

This little T is crocheted flat in 4 pieces using good ol’ half double crochet and uses easy shaping techniques. A great project for a confident beginner. It requires some seaming and knowledge of raglan construction, but a detailed schematic and one on one designer support is here to help get you through.
