Virgil Tee by Caitlin Hunter
The Virgil Tee by Caitlin Hunter of Boyland Knitworks is a universally flattering top, designed to celebrate and highlight the beauty of all women and all body types. The gentle shaping is naturally formed by the slightly tighter tension of the colorwork bands, bringing stability and fit to the yoke and waist and allowing the bust and sleeves to flow easily and comfortably over the body. Knit from the top down in the round, this show-stopping sweater is deceptively simple and suitable for all levels of knitters. There are no short rows, seaming or complicated construction elements required.
