Sansho is an effortless tee worked double stranded for a marled effect. A contrasting color adds interest to the shoulder that is worked in reverse stockinette stitch.

For the short sleeve and upper back, stitches are picked up along the raglan line and neck stitches for the back neck are cast on. These sections are then worked in one piece over the shoulder with decreasing sts at the sleeve edges. For sizes 2XL–5XL, German Short Rows are worked on the sleeves to ensure that the sleeve opening is big enough.

The edges of the V-neck and the sleeves are worked as you go, while the hem is bound off with a 3-st I-cord.
