This tee is knit top down starting with the back and then picking up stitches in the cast on edge of the back for the front which is worked flat to the arm holes. The front and back are then joined to work in the round. There is a little short row shaping for the neckline and for the hem. After the tee is knit there is no need to pick up stitches for the neckline or the cuffs of the sleeve. Once casting off at the hem the tee is complete!! This tee is meant to be worn with 2– 4 inches of positive ease.
