Amande tee est aussi disponible en français.

Amande tee is a pullover or a tee with a very unusual construction, similar to her sisters amandine cardigan and amande cardigan

It is worked seamlessly, in the round from the shouldertop downwards and sideways. It’s a bit tricky to start the special shoulder shaping, but after this first challenging part, it’s plain, mindless knitting. The body and the sleeves are worked in the round from the top down.
The pattern includes instructions for short sleeves or 3/4 and long sleeves with matching elbow patches.

It is preferable to work with two different colors to show off the unique construction.
