Basic B Tee Pattern
***THIS IS NOT A PHYSICAL ITEM, THIS IS A DOWNLOADABLE COPY OF A PDF VERSION OF MY KNIT PATTERN***
The construction of this design is knit in a top-down manner, with basic increases, and features I-cord bind offs for the sleeves and hem. This design includes about 0.5 - 1.0” of positive ease, so when selecting your preferred size choose the size closest to your accurate bust measurements. If in-between sizes I recommend going up a size if you do not prefer a snug fit, and going down a size if you love that hug your skin crop top vibe.
Size Options: (based on bust measurement in inches)
XS (S , M , L , XL)2XL , 3XL , 4XL

- I intended to have this design tested in size 5XL and was unable to find any testers for this size. If you are someone who wears a size 5XL(61-64” bust size) and are interested in testing this pattern for me. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org , I will then email you a free copy of this pattern. You will have a timeframe of 6 weeks to complete the test for me, and return feedback. Please contact me if this applies to you and you would like to test knit this design in 5XL for me, thank you! * *
