Anker’s Shirt is worked from the top down. The yoke is worked in sections of rib with increases in the round, followed by classic raglan increases when the stockinette stitch section begins. The yoke is worked back and forth at first to create an opening in the back. Then, it is worked seamlessly in the round on circular needles. The sleeves are worked on double pointed needles or using the magic loop technique. You can choose a different edge for bottom of the body and the sleeves: either a folded edge or a rib edge - the latter will give the shirt a less feminine look.
