Afton is a textured, slightly cropped, layering tee inspired by warm days and cool nights. The easy and enjoyable openwork lace is nice and breezy while the delicious cotton/wool blend of YOTH Best Friend adds just a hint of warmth when the temperature drops.

This tee has a comfortable 8” of positive ease with a simple seamed drop shoulder shaped with short rows. Knit from the bottom split hem up, Afton is knit both in the round and flat with minimal finishing work and gorgeous drape!
