Pattern Notes

Tee starts with the upper back foundation with rows worked for upper back length to bottom of cold shoulder opening. Left front is worked first then Right front. Fronts are worked off opposite side of back foundation with neckline increases until reach bottom of cold shoulder opening. Fronts and back are attached with a short chain length that becomes top of sleeve.

Following rows are worked with increases to shape sleeves and continuing increases for neckline shaping. Once neckline is joined, yarn is cut and re-attached at center back, remainder of garment is worked in turned rounds with increase points at center back and front. 3rd round armhole is joined.

Stitch markers will be important in shaping of garment. You will need at least 6 stitch markers in one color to indicate increase points, and 4 stitch markers in different color to indicate armhole edges. Move up armhole edge, CB and CF markers to corresponding stitch or space as each row/round is worked, only making increases when pattern instructions say to. Sleeve increase markers are added to stitches when instructed.
