The Salty Air Tee was designed with easy breezy summer moments in mind. Simple construction, a delicate lace yoke and a style that’s easily modified to wear just the way you like it.

When knit to a cropped length, Salty Air pairs beautifully with skirts, dresses and high waisted pants. Or you can add some length to the body and style it with shorts, jeans or just about anything!

Construction

The Salty Air Tee is knit seamlessly from the top down. The neckline is cast on and short rows are worked to raise the back of the neck for a comfortable fit. The yoke lace is knit, then the body and sleeves are separated and worked from the top down.
