The tee is worked in the round, from top to bottom. You will begin at the neck opening with Garter hem. Next, there is a short-row section at the back neck for better fit. The yoke is shaped with numerous increases incorporated in the eyelet Triangle sections. After dividing the body from the sleeves, you work in St st in the round down to the Garter hem. The short sleeves are worked last. They are worked in the round and finished with Garter hem to match the body.
