Shell Border Tee

Shell Border Tee

Lanaknits Shell Border T-shirt in Aubergine. I made a few mods, lenthened it by a few inches, added some waist shaping, and I added an exra repeat in both the hem and the arm borders to give me some room. I used 4 skeins for the smallest size and had a decent amount left over even with adding length. If you make this top, knit on the smaller side, the fabric really loosens up. The hemp feels so nice and drapy now that it's been through the washer. Plus, nice and cool, I know I will be wearing it a lot this summer.
