Summer is the time for relaxed tees. Now is the time to start knitting so you are all set for the season!

Capolette by designer Elizabeth Smith is a lightweight, layering tee that is easy to knit & fun to wear. Wear it alone, layer over a tank top or pair with a long sleeve top to extend the season. It can also be worn underneath a favorite cardigan. So versatile!

The top is knit seamlessly in the round from the bottom up on size US 6 needles. Elizabeth chose Berroco Remix Light, a light DK weight yarn with beautiful drape to achieve the look.

Spun in France from 100% recycled fibers (nylon, cotton, acrylic, silk, linen), Remix Light knits into a light, tweedy fabric that also benefits the environment!
