Description

Janet Guthrie by Anne Hanson 
What could be more versatile than a summery, striped shirt that goes to the office with a suit or skirt, but works for a sporty weekend look, too? This top in ten sizes (XS/S/M/L/1X/2X/3X/4X/5X/6X), with subtle body shaping,
textured stripes, and an open placket with collar, can be knit sleeveless or with short sleeves, in two colors or one, and works up beautifully in cool, plant-based yarns. All pieces are knit flat from the bottom up and seamed.

Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape.
