The #SizeInclusive Jewel Tone Tee is a colorful summer tee with a softly curving neckline, short sleeves, and a relaxed fit. This lightweight stitch pattern is quick to crochet (perfect for beginners) and brings some drape and stretch. The special feature of this design is the striping of three accent colors along the bottom edge and sleeves which, when worked in the linen stitch, creates a powerful statement detail resembling little jewels. Crocheted using Lion Brand’s Color Theory yarn, a family of sophisticated colors intended to be mixed and matched with one another. You’ll need 4 colors to create your own Jewel Tone Tee – picking your colors is half the fun!
