Time to pump up the volume on your handknit wardrobe! This homage to the mixtape is a fun, retro design that uses the intarsia technique. this lightweight tee is knit in only 2 pieces (front and back) and then seamed together. There is even a light colored band at the top of the tape motif that is perfect for labeling (aka ‘embroidering’) the name of your creation!
