This tee is raglan style and starts at the top with a circular yolk. I love top down style tops because of the great fit and there’s no sewing.

  1. Love your patterns! It’s wonderful to see patterns that come in larger sizes and are suitable for any age. Thank you, Breann! You are one of the best.

  2. Dear Breann, thank you very much for the lovely pattern. I am planning to start it tomorrow. Can you please help me on what are turned rounds.

    Thank you very much and please be careful outside. I await your answer.

    Thanks,

    1. Hi! After you join each round you’re going to turn and work the next round in the other direction. Just like if you were doing rows 🙂

  3. When skipping the stitches for the sleeve, do you slip stitch those, fasten off and rejoin yarn, or are you carrying the yarn? Thanks!

    1. Hi! You just completely skip that section and dc in the next stitch. It will create a fold in the circle and that’s the sleeve. I hope that helps 🙂
