Renate’s tee features a classic A-line silhouette brought to life by easy slip-stitches, cap-sleeves, and a lovely Latvian braid at the neckline. The result? A bold, graphic handknit tee that’s warm weather-ready. All you have to do is choose your two favorite contrasting colourways of Sparrow—and you’re good to go!
