Crazy stripes tee is a seamless pullover worked from the top down in 1 piece.
Starting with shaping the back and shoulders, stitches are picked up for the front and sleeves and are worked following the contiguous sleeve method, developed by Susie Myers.
The stripes going from small to large stripes are shaped by working short rows.
Can be worn with no ease, a little negative or positive ease.
Due to the nature of the contiguous sleeve inset, it’s best to start with the numbers of the size closest to your high bust measurement and add more increases for the body and sleeves, if you should want more ease.

The pattern is written for 2 colors (main color: MC and contrasting color: CC) but the idea is to add some other matching or contrasting colors for the stripes. Let’s have some fun … Let’s make it crazy …
