    Valley Yarns 355 Manta Top-Down Tee

    Set-in sleeves with no seaming? Yes, it can be done! This top-down tee features flattering set-in sleeves that are knit simultaneously with the rest of the yoke. The lower body is worked in the round with subtle A-line shaping. Working Longmeadow at a looser gauge than normal creates a soft, flowing fabric that will help keep you cool.

      Comments about Valley Yarns 355 Manta Top-Down Tee:

      Great pattern, easy to knit up, but be careful at "seams" around armholes and neckline; if not done precisely leaves gaps. I didn't like the finished look so I added knit flowers around the neckline to cover up some of the holes.
