Pat T-Shirt Designer Knitting Pattern

Regular price $ 15.00


This pattern is inspired by the classic pocket T-shirt. Knit from the top down in one piece, the shoulders and neck are shaped using short rows, and the shoulders are joined using the invisible cast-on method. The body is worked in the round. The sleeve stitches are picked around the arm opening and are also worked in the round. The sleeves and body are finished with seamless folded hems.

The body length can be tailored simply by removing the work from your needles and trying it on to guarantee it is exactly the length you desire before you finish it.

The light weight cotton blend yarn results in a very flexible garment. Is it a T-shirt, is it a sweater? You decide.

Pattern and Row Checker
This pattern includes a list of all abbreviations, glossary of terms, and a crisp schematic with dimensions for proper blocking. It also comes with my unique Row Checker, complimentary. A tool you can use to help keep track of your stitch count, row number, increases, and decreases. Throughout the pattern you’ll find indicators of when to refer to your Row Checker.

Sophisticated, elegant, stylish, chic. After seeing James’ collection, I may give up needlepoint.

These designs take men's sweaters to a whole new level of luxury and deliciousness. Might have to get a new man once my divorce goes through, just so I can knit him a James Cox Knits sweater.
