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.
BASIC PATTERN INFO
This T is knit top down flat to shape the back neck, then joined in the round for the raglan yoke. Sleeves are separated and body is knit in the round. Sleeves and hem are finished with a twisted rib. Instructions for an optional crochet neck trim are provided.
