Whether you are a process knitter or if you’re just in it for the end result – Fosette does not disappoint! This cute, cropped tee is constantly changing colors and stitch patterns. It has a wee bit of everything – super easy lace, fun texture, bobbles, and stranded and mosaic colorwork.

Fosette was designed to be a pretty top for transitional seasons that can be worn with high-waisted skirts or pants, or over a dress or long shirt.

“Fosette” is a French girls’ name that means “dimpled.” With bobbles and texture, it was a perfect fit for this cute top!
