The perfect knit Tee Shirt with a twist!  The striped Tee shirt features a zig zag pattern that shows up nicely in the stripe.  A slight flare at the bottom offers comfort and a nice drape adding a bit of style to a regular Tee. A cap sleeve offers a dressier look as well as more coverage. All lines of the pattern are written out, making it easy to follow.

All patterns are available for immediate PDF download-no extra fees

Size #6 needle You may find it more comfortable to use a circular needle instead of a straight needle to accommodate the large number of the stitches at the cast on. You can switch to a straight needle as you decrease and have fewer stitches.  You do not need a circular needle for the neck or armhole.  Please remember that your needle size may vary after knitting your gauge.

Stitch holders- Only needed if you will be seaming the shoulders with the 3 needle bind off method.

Stitch Markers/Safety pins- you will only need 5 or so of each.
