Roanoke is a lightweight, loose-fitting tee with casual rolled hems, cap sleeves, and lace detail around the neckline. It’s worked in a fingering yarn at a loose gauge for lots of drape. Waist shaping adds a figure-flattering touch.
The tee is constructed seamlessly from the bottom up, in the round to the armholes and then back and forth for the front and the back. Sleeve stitches are picked up from around the armholes and cap sleeves are worked with short-rows.
