Feels Like Summer 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 top down seamlessly and in the round. The t-shirt features a casual v-neck that isn’t too deep. All edges (sleeve hems, bottom hem, and v-neck edge) feature I-cord detailing. The increases used are the Lli + Rli increases, making them nice, subtle and delicate looking. The length is fully customizable, however, it is intended to be long enough to tuck in the front of a cute pair of jeans for the spring and have a nice loose flow to the shirt.
The t-shirt includes positive ease of roughly about 4-6” depending on which size you choose
Size Options: (based on bust measurement in inches)

BUST MEASURMENT - XXS 25-28” (XS 29-32”, S 33-36” , M 37-40” , L 41-44” , XL 45-47”) 2XL 48-52” , 3XL 53-56” , 4XL 57-60” , 5XL 61-64”, 6XL 65-68”

4-6” of positive ease, meaning this design should fit relatively loose unless you size down and lose out on positive ease. If in between sizes, I recommend deciding wether you would like a looser fit or a more snug fit and choose based off of your preferred ease.
I used - Illimani Sabri which is an 85% cotton 15% baby alpaca blend (fingering weight)
For this design feel free to use any Fingering/Sock weight yarn that meets gauge.
(Ideally if subbing yarn, I would recommend a similar yarn to Sabri in fibre content, however this is not mandatory at all. As long as gauge is met properly any yarn in this weight category will work perfectly.)
