PATTERN NOTES The body of this tee is knit flat in pieces from the bottom up and seamed. The back panels overlap, leaving the back of the garment open and airy. Stitches for the sleeves are picked up and knit in the round from the top down. The neckband is also picked up and knit in the round.
We recommend choosing a size with 0-4” of ease.
Please note that this pattern features a self-shading yarn. When breaking yarn to divide for the neck, and for picking up the sleeves, you will want to break yarn and wind off until you reach the same section of colors when you rejoin the yarn. This is not required but will provide results most like the sample. You may wish to purchase an extra skein as insurance.
