The everyday t-shirt that goes with everything. I designed the #FeelsRightTee to show off those awkward leftovers of sock yarn, and choosing colours and combinations is half the fun.

Construction: the entire t-shirt is worked seamlessly from the top down. It begins by working the upper body back and forth in rows, then back and front are joined to work the lower body in the round. Stitches are picked up around the neck to work the ribbed neckband. The sleeves are worked by picking up around the armhole edge, then filling in the set in sleeve ‘cap’ with short rows. The sleeves are then joined to begin working in the round, where a short cuff is worked in the contrast colour.

yarn: 4 ply / fingering weight yarn, 682 (758; 851; 937; 1031) 1143; 1299; 1433; 1548 yards / 623 (693; 778; 857; 943) 1044; 1187; 1309; 1414 metres total. Divide this between the Main Colour and Contrast Colour however you wish.
For a striped band of a similar depth to the sample, you will need between 30g and 100g of sock yarn depending on the size.
Sample shown uses Rico Essential Cotton 4ply for MC, and Fyberspates handdyed sock yarn for CC.
The Feels Right Tee is designed to be used as a basic t-shirt pattern for you to add stripes and colour blocks as you wish - see test knitter photos for examples of fun ways to combine colours.

needles and notions: 3.25mm and 3mm needles: 24 inch / 60cm circular needle for body, plus either DPNs or long circular needle (for magic loop) for sleeves and neckband. You will also need scrap yarn for holding stitches, lockable stitch markers, and a tapestry needle.

gauge: 26 sts and 34 rows to 4 inches / 10cm in stocking stitch, blocked.

Sizing: 1 (2: 3: 4: 5) 6: 7: 8: 9 detailed on next page, designed to be worn with 2 - 4 inches / 5 – 10 cm positive ease. Sample shown is a size 2 worn on a 34” bust with around 2 inches of positive ease.

To fit bust: 28-30 (32-34; 36-38; 40-42; 44-46) (48-50; 52-54; 56-58; 60-62) inches / 71-76 (81-86; 91-97; 102-107; 112-117) (122-127; 132-137; 142-147; 152-157) cm.

Finished bust circumference: 31.5 (36; 39.5; 44; 47.5) (52; 55.5; 60; 63.5) inches / 80 (91; 101; 112; 121) (132; 141; 152; 162) cm.

The Feels Right Tee is #SizeInclusive to a bust of 62”, plus the intended positive ease.
