NOTES

  • This tee is worked in the round from the top down, beginning with a provisional cast-on. The neckband stitches are picked up from the provisional cast-on and worked in the round.

  • When increasing for the yoke, change to a longer circular needle when there are too many stitches to fit comfortably on the 16” circular needle.
