This is a fun and fast striped raglan tee in two colors of summer yarn. The stripes are narrow and you need not cut the yarn very often as the yarn is carried on the back side.

The tee is worked bottom up in the round - sleeves are joined with the body at the arm gap, then the yoke with its raglan decreases is worked in the round to the neckline in the front. The neckline is shaped with wrapped stitches in short rows.

There are 3 sizes, I call them Small, Medium and Large but the measurements are as follows:

A - Hem Width: (17, 18, 19) in
B - Arm Gap to Arm Gap: (17, 18, 19) in
C - Hem to Arm Gap: (10.5, 12 , 14) in
D - Arm Gap to Shoulder: (7, 7.5, 8)”
E= C+D - Hem to Shoulder: (17.5, 19.5, 22) in
F - Sleeve length: (2, 2.5, 3) in
G - Sleeve circumference: (13, 14, 15) in
H - Neck Opening width: (7, 7, 8) in
I - Neck Opening depth: (2, 2, 2.5) in

The tee fits with positive ease so it should be possible for many of you to find a size that works.

The gauge is 22 sts and 34 rnds per 4” = 10 cm on US4 / 3.5mm needles (stockinette sts).

I have also worked the tee in 2 different colors of BC Garn Lino - instead of the combination of Alba and Lino. To me it becomes a wonderful tee either way.
You’ll need 5 skeins of yarn for Small and Medium (2 Lino, 3 Alba)
You’ll need 7 skeins of yarn for Large (3 Lino, 4 Alba)
