Simple 'Tee' - Serena Version

Simple 'Tee' - Serena Version

"Soft and drapey."

Here's the light little top you've been looking for! In this version of our Simple Tee, Manos Serena creates a soft, cool fabric that's light without being easy to wear. Subtle variations from the kettle dyeing create complex color, and with a hits-at-the-hip hem and bracelet-length sleeves this tee is a great cover-up for cool summer evenings. Alpaca/cotton blend transitions this easily into a three season garment. We think you'll wear---and knit---this 'tee' again and again!

Pick up the pattern below, and then choose your color of Serena. The Basic Details tab will tell you how many skeins you need for your size. We've selected 10 colors here, but for a full selection go to the Manos Serena Solid yarn page.
