Jushi is a versatile tee knit seamlessly from the top down. Two bands in stockinette stitch travel on a reverse stockinette background from the back hem over the shoulder, down the V-neck, back to the other shoulder, and to the back hem again.

The two sides are different: One side (referred to as front in the directions) has a V-neck, the other side has no neck shaping and results in a boat neck when worn. This enables you to decide each time when wearing which side to wear on the front.

The lovely lustrous silk blend yarn drapes very well and makes this easy to knit tee an effortless piece to dress up.
