A Mazing Tee is a short sleeved summer tee worked in two (or more) colors. First front and back panels are knit top-down featuring a slip stitch mosaic pattern. Only one color is worked per row. The top of both panels with the neckline and shoulder shaping is written out but the basic mosaic pattern is charted only.
The front and back panel are finished with a ‘no finish look’ bind off method (an illustrated tutorial is included).

A small saddle shoulder is worked sidewise joining back and front at the same time.

Then stitches are picked up & knit along both panels to work the sides. Here you can easily adapt the size by working more or less rows.

A few short rows at the shoulders and beginning of the sleeves assure a better fit. The sleeves are worked in the round.
