The Elva tee is an elegant yet simple cap-sleeve tee knit from the top down. The short sleeves feature a beginner-friendly lace motif and the body is knit in stockinette stitch in the round. Short rows help lengthen the back neckline of the shirt while subtle increases in the body create an almost A-line silhouette. Garter stitch frames the body and sleeves along the hemlines, then a clean I-cord edge finishes off the neckline. Bamboo, linen, silk, hemp and/or cotton blends knit up beautifully in this warm weather top.
