Choose Your Own Adventure Tee
The Choose Your Own Adventure Tee Along kicked off on July 25th and runs through September 5th. There are tons of great prizes! Grab the pattern and come #teealong! Get more info about the KAL at the TeeAlong thread.
Just like those Choose Your Own Adventure books we use to read as kids, this pattern is completely customizable so you can get the body and sleeve length and drape you want! With the same pattern you can make a cropped short sleeve tee or a tunic length tee with elbow length sleeves. Tee length body with flutter elbow length sleeves? 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.
Finished Size 35.5 (38.5, 41.5, 45.25, 49.25, 54.5, 59)” bust/chest circumference. Designed to be worn with 2+” of positive ease.

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!
