Designed for effortless wear, this versatile tee brings class and sophistication. The details, such as the dolman shape of sleeves and the simple lace pattern adorning the top of the piece, make Oak Hill a staple in any wardrobe. The tee is worked circularly from the hem to the armholes; short rows refine the shoulder fit while the structure is reinforced with a 3-Needle bind off.

Yummy 3-ply is a perfect name for the yarn I chose for this design. The huge assortment of delicious colors, next-to-skin softness, and impressive drape – it’s definitely my first choice for warm weather knits.
