Pabaigh

This simple tee with a contemporary shape is ideal for maritime layering with its deep funnelled collar for keeping out the wind. The design is named for a beautiful uninhabited island in Scotland’s outer Hebrides.

Pattern notes
This easy-to-layer tee, with deep funnelled collar, is knitted in the round from the bottom up, with increases worked through the length to create a simple dolman shape. Stitches are set aside for the underarm, then front and back are worked separately (back and forth), shaping the cap sleeves and working the back slightly longer to raise the back of the neck and shoulders. Shoulders are grafted, then the long funnel is worked up through the neckline. After neck and sleeve caps are edged with 2 x 2 rib, the tee is ready to wear.
