"The Easy Striped Summer Tee is a fun cropped topper that's incredibly simple to crochet. And a great addition to your warm-weather wardrobe. The Easy Striped Summer Tee is a great summer make - so easy you can crochet it at the beach or by the pool! Two rectangles, made of the most basic stitches, get seamed into a flattering v-neck top. The linked treble stitches at the waist give it a rolled look - but there's a substitute for that in the notes below if you want to keep it easy! The Easy Striped Summer Tee crochet pattern includes 3 sizes, that range from XS to 5X. This top features a loose, oversize fit and I've included the actual bust measurement for each size in the pattern. I've given this pattern a cropped length, but you can easily make it longer if desired too - just see the pattern Notes!"
"Get yourself ready for spring with this fun and lightweight crochet tee. The Willow Tee pattern uses the moss stitch you know and love, simple top-down construction and beautiful round yoke to create an unique wardrobe favourite you will want to wear every day! It look good with your casual pair of shorts or jeans but this crochet tee looks just as attractive worn with your favourite skirt. Worked from top-down, completely seamlessly, this design is intended to be worn with -2” to +2” (-5 to +5cm) of ease, depending on your personal preference and can be worked to a cropped or standard length. The pattern uses US crochet terminology."
To that point, here is a top down crochet raglan, in fact and in name. Truly, this lovely piece will be a joy to make and very functional to wear.

"This comfy summer tee is available in 9 sizes, from 30-62″ bust with 2-4″ of ease. This project was inspired by baseball tees that have contrasting color sleeves. Designed to have 2-4″ of ease this is comfortable enough to wear while playing ball with your kids, but hip and cute enough to wear out with with your friends. It's constructed top down, raglan style, worked intarsia through the yoke. You'll hold 4 balls at once, but won't have to carry any floats! "
