Heart’s Content is a top-down, seamless, knitted, sleeveless tee. The raglan lace and shoulder mesh transitions to a stranded yoke and body that has waisted shaping. Short rows in the collar raise the back neck and short rows in the cuffs minimize bulk in the underarms. With 3 different colourway options from which to choose, you can pick one “to your heart’s content”!
