I’m always looking for simple pieces that I can use to layer in the warmer months, over dresses or tunics. And Castaway is just that - a simple, cropped & boxy tee meant to be worn with generous ease for an easy-fitting and relaxed summer look that looks great layered.

And the Berroco Quinoa yarn is a perfect choice for it - the cotton/nylon blend is great for summer weather and it’s textured appearance gives the simple stockinette stitch lots of visual interest.
