The tee is worked in the round starting at the neck, with an I-cord cast on, and increases running down the shoulder seam detail. It’s divided and worked flat to create the armholes, then joined again for the body, with a decorative seam detail running down the sides. Short rows are worked for a gently curved back hem, finished with an I-cord bind off.
Crochet provisional CO is used to start the I-cord CO for a seamless finish, feel free to choose any other preferred CO technique instead.
All slip stitches are worked purlwise wyib unless specified otherwise.
German short row method is used throughout to keep the wrapped stitches tight and less noticeable.
