Product description

Lose yourself in Mesic’s evocative motifs and let each stitch transport you to America’s majestic Southwest. Inspired by striated sandstone and bowing prairie grass, bands of beautiful stranded colorwork create a dramatic yoke for this cropped, short-sleeve tee. Worked from the top-down in Dapple’s organic cotton and Merino blend, this design’s clever hi-lo, split hem makes for a breathable, all-season staple you’ll reach for again and again.

    CONSTRUCTION & FIT NOTES

    • This pullover is worked seamlessly from the top down with short rows at the base of the neckband to shape the back neck. The body and sleeves are divided at the underarms and worked separately. The body is worked circularly to the top of the hem ribbing and then divided; the back and front are worked flat to create hi-lo side vents. The sleeves are worked circularly to the cuffs. 
    • Designed for a cropped fit, body length can be worked to desired length (note that lengthening will require additional yardage); see Schematic for dimensions.
