INTRODUCTION

Tangy

Perfect for layering over a tank in the warmer months, this tee takes only one or two skeins of laceweight yarn. It's knit from the top down with just two little seams under the arm for minimal finishing.

Green Machine is named after a piece of equipment at the Madelinetosh headquarters in Texas that skeins yarn that has come from the mill on cones. The color in the sample was dyed specially for this project, and is named Jazz Hands after Jasmine herself.
