A beautiful everyday top, Valley Yarns Redbud is a textured yoke tee that will slide right into your summer wardrobe. This tee is worked in the round from the bottom up, with the sleeves joining the body to work the raglan yoke in one piece. The ribbed trims frame the stockinette stitch body and the texture pattern on the yoke provides a beautiful focal point. Valley Yarns Leverett is a smooth and soft blend of Pima cotton and linen that’s perfect for warm-weather garments, keeping you cool and comfortable even as temperatures rise. Texture pattern is both charted and written out.
