This little tee is a cheerful top-down summer top with short, slightly puffy raglan sleeves. Two colours and a striped garter stitch edging are giving it a sporty flair. The cooling cotton makes it a perfect companion for spring and summer.

The top is fitted but airy due to 4cm(1.5“) positive ease. Its square neckline is combined with a sexy front slit. Eloise is knitted flat and in the round on circular needles, so it is completely seamless!
