A top down, seamless raglan tee shirt with a scoop neck, flattering front gathers and a gentle A-line shape.

Based on my favourite ever tee shirt, this is a shape that flatters many body types. It is worked entirely in the round, with sleeve and neckline stitches worked after the main body is complete. It is a very quick knit on 5mm (US 8) needles.

Afterthought pockets are entirely optional, of course. I just really love pockets. :)

The tee can be tried on as you go to get a perfect fit. This is a comfy, everyday item knit in Drops Paris 10ply cotton. This yarn is lovely and soft against the skin and comes in an amazing range of colours!

Other fibres would also work, perhaps in wool with longer sleeves for winter, or a bamboo or silk blend. Drops Bomull-Lin is a nice linen blend alternative.

Shown in size small on 33” bust.
