Josephine is a raglan tee knit top down seamlessly in the round with a beautiful lace panel that can be worn facing the front or the back. I named this design after Josephine Baker who was an entertainer, activist, and French Resistance agent. You will probably remember her best from her banana skirt.

Accent yarn (used yarn from a recycled thrift store sweater) 80 (100, 120, 140, 160, 180, 200, 220, 240) yards
