A classic “Grand Dad shirt” worked in garter sts.
This shirt might look a bit ordinary, but be hold, it’s all in the details.

Grand Dad is worked in flat bottom up. Shoulders are worked together with a 3needle bind off, sleeves are worked top down.

To get the authentic casual look, the back is a bit longer than the front, slids in both sides with i-cord edges that turns into slip st edge, making grafting a peace of cake, and a nice decorative detail along the side seams.

This version of Grand Dad is worked on smaller needles, perfect for indoor use.

Grand Dad worked on larger needles will be available soon.
