Notes This tee is worked from the top down. The back is worked separately back and forth to the underarm and the stitches are placed on holders. Stitches for the front are picked up along the back shoulders and cast on for the neck, then the front is worked to the underarm. The front and back are then joined and worked in the round to the lower edge.
