I'm so sorry AGAIN people.... another mistake taken care of (in purple.)
If anybody picks up more mistakes, I will just die.
Sorry for the mistake everyone, the purple section is now correct.
I just whipped this up, a simple top down tee which a lot of you can make with your eyes closed...
But for those of you who aren't THAT confident and have a 36 inch bust, here are my simple notes (please keep in mind I'm rotten at pattern writing!):
I used a blend of angora/wool that gave me 23 sts - 4inches.
With size 4mm circular needles c/on 160 sts.
Work this row in st st: Place marker after 57 sts, after 23 sts, after 57 sts, and after 23 sts, then join in the round. Keep working in st st and increase one stitch (yo's) before and after each marker, on every second round.
After about 30 rounds start knitting the arm sections in garter stitch.
After about 35 rounds (this is just roughly) place all sts on waste yarn and safety-pin the arm 'points' together - try on. If it fits comfortably, it's time to seperate the arm openings. Place sts back on needle.Knit to arm section and B/O all arm sts. Join work. Knit to next arm section and B/O arm sts. Join work.
Continue knitting in the round until about an inch before binding off. Work in garter stitch for that inch, then b/o very loosely.
Of course you can add body shaping and a neck border if you want. I just left mine to roll.
Please let me know of any mistakes or if something doesn't make sense.
