Pattern notes
This light tee is knitted from the bottom up. After a few rounds of twisted rib, the cropped body (which can be knit longer if desired) is knitted to the underarms. Two sleeve caps are knitted, body and sleeves are joined, and the yoke is worked from a lace chart to the neck. The back neck is raised by working (optional) short rows and completed with twisted rib.
