A spicy riff on the classic tee, Tar is a relaxed-yet-sexy raglan that easily dresses up or down.

Perfect for layering or wearing on its own, it’s knit seamlessly in the round from the top down, and features a hint of waist shaping and 3/4 sleeves.

The stylish boat neck, waist, and cuffs are all edged with ribbing.

Knit it in Shibui Heichi – a rustic silk tweed – for a luxurious, drapey fabric with a beautiful sheen.

Pattern has been tech-edited and test knitted.
