Nomad Tee Yarn Kit - Jean Michel Colourway

        

The Nomad Tee is an eye-catching, relaxed-fit tee designed for warmer weather months. It is worked sideways to allow stranded colourwork to run up through the centre of the garment vertically, wrapping around a V-neckline and down the back. There are two sleeve options in this design, allowing you to create either a shorter, capped sleeve or a slightly longer sleeve that features stranded colourwork. The loose, draped fit ensures a comfortable, airy addition to your warmer weather wardrobe.
