Pattern notes
After establishing the six twisted stitch cable panels, this simple tee is worked in the round to the underarms, after which front and back are worked separately, back and forth, with increases worked between the panels to create neat grown-on sleeves. The neck is shaped, shoulders are joined with a 3-needle bind off, and ribbing is added around the neck and armscyes.
