bolan / Leila Raabe

We adore Leila's Bolan tee: Knitted sideways in four pieces—two panels for the front, two for the back—worked from the center out to the ends of the short sleeves, this one is a fun knit for sure; and the gorgeous textured lace panel in the yoke flatters the collarbones, making it a piece you'll want to grab all the time.
