Gelato al limon is a seamless (no sewing) shirt / tee with different stitch patterns and lots and lots of finishing techniques… double knit buttonbands, double knit collar with collar stand and double knit hems. It is worked in pieces and assembled by picking up and knitting stitches and binding off with 3 needles …

First the back and front are worked separately bottom up. The shoulders and the sides are knitted sideways before knitting the sleeves top down. Finally the hems, buttonbands and collar are added.

No shaping in the front and back panel because the different slip stitch patterns take care of the waist.

Lots of photo tutorials and illustrations are included to illustrate all the finishing techniques.

Sizes: XS, S, M, M2, L, XL finished measurements chest: 72, 82, 90, 98, 111, 121 cm (28½ / 32 / 35½ / 38½ / 43¾ / 48“)
If you are in between sizes choose the smaller size and the width can easily be altered by knitting more rows at the sides.
