Wool Knot is a seamless, featherweight tee mostly worked in the round, from the top down.
The pattern starts by working the shoulders to the underarms, then the front and back are joined together and the body worked in one piece, with zero finishing.
The top features a basic stockinette/stocking stitch pattern with endless stripe combinations and nice little details.
Knit your Wool Knot with a lightweight yarn at a loose gauge to achieve light fabric with a drapey look.

For a result like my sample, choose two similar colours as CA and CC and two other low-contrast colours as CB and CD. You can of course work the top in a solid colour or use leftovers for a million-stripes project!

The pattern includes a photo tutorial for knot.
