Blakeley £4.75


A fitted cabled t-shirt

This tee is knitted in the round as a seamless tee from the top down. It is worked in a rib pattern throughout which makes it stretchy and able to fit different shapes with little shaping needed. The cable pattern at the front provides waist shaping and draws the eye inwards to flatter. Further shaping occurs at the back waist with barely visible decreases. Overall it gives a flattering effect to the figure – something we all need!

Instructions are given in both chart and written form for the cable pattern.
