Swing tunic length with short sleeves? Cropped with three quarter length sleeves? The world (or tee!) is your oyster. Mix and match finishings and create wardrobe staples you can wear all year around.

Notes This garment is worked seamlessly from the top-down using the contiguous sleeve method developed by Susie Myers, SusieM on Ravelry. It’s brilliant and works perfectly for a choose your own adventure style pattern like this. Everyone follows the same pattern through the armhole separations and then you start getting creative!
