This is a simple top-down raglan project that is suitable for a garment newbie. The cap sleeves are knit along with the yoke - so no picking up stitches later. The front center texture gives a flattering lacey look and makes a weather appropriate garment for the Summer months.

As a fun fact, "Leesi" is from the root word ‘lace’ in Nigerian Yoruba language.
