    A B O U T
    Construction notes: ↬ After selecting your size, before beginning, use a highlighter or pen to indicate each corresponding number for your chosen size where listed in the pattern.

    ↬Tee is worked flat from end to end, and sts are picked up along the edge and knit in garter stitch to create a gentle sleeve edge. Sides are then seamed and the collar and hem edges are left raw.

    ↬Main piece is worked in woven st, with what would normally be considered the WS used as the RS.

    ↬Extra length is worked in the back to give the armhole a bit more room, and move the neckline forward just a bit.

    ____ in X ___sts per in = ___sts.

    Once you’ve added these sts, be sure to adjust your st totals! Keep this in mind when working the collar, your shoulder sts will need to be adjusted as well.

    *To add or remove length in the body, simply add or remove rnds using the following formula:
    ___ in X ___rows per in = ___ rows.
