Drawing inspiration from the carved motifs and repeated impressions of woodblock prints, this versatile tee brings polish and ease to your spring wardrobe. Worked circularly from the hem to the armholes, short rows refine the shoulder fit while the structure is reinforced with a joinery bind off. Sleeves are picked up and knit circularly, and finished with folded cuffs pressed flat during blocking. Cleverly concealed finishing details allow this charming piece to be fully reversible. The buoyant drape of Peerie’s springy Merino enhances this easy-wearing tee, making it an ideal layering piece for those blustery spring days.

We love Ever Greene so much that we decided to make it even easier for you to own the whole collection! Purchase the four-pattern bundle on BrooklynTweed.com and pay $6 less than the sum of the single patterns purchased separately. The designer will still receive their full commission and you will have filled out your library with a classic array of modern, all-weather staples.

Join our Ever Greene KAL, knit with new friends and transform those skeins into favorite fresh looks.

Please note: the stitch patterns used for this garment include written as well as charted instructions.
