ORC Raglan T

It's been a year and a half since I finished my original ORC Raglan T, and I finally have the pattern tech edited and graded, and ready for testing!

The ORC Raglan T is the perfect T-shirt that goes with anything and is so comfortable you’ll want to wear it with everything! 

I’m speaking from personal experience - I never want to take mine off!

It’s your favorite T. The one you can throw on with a pair of sweats to run down to the store, or a pair of leggings to meet a friend for coffee, or wear effortlessly with your favorite jeans dressed up or down. There’s just something about being hand-knit that elevates an otherwise basic garment, and this sweater-tee is a perfect example of that. A touch of elegance coupled with comfort.
