This easy to knit tee shirt is heavenly to wear and so much fun to knit. It is knitted top down and completely seamless. The yarn is held double at first, with eyelet (yo) increases at the top for the sleeves, and then held single once you have separated for the armholes. Then you add M1 increases at the sides that create a fabric that is flowing on the body, and not at all clingy, so it is figure-flattering for all. I designed it for a new yarn, Beaded Silk and Sequins Light with Metal beads, which are so subtle and sparkly at the same time. You can substitute Ensemble Light instead, and you’ll need 2 skeins of that for the small-medium size. The yarn held single on size 8 US needles creates a sheer fabric. So you can wear it with a cami underneath or without as you wish.
