For this tee I used Lion Brand Comfy Cotton Blend. It is the perfect summer yarn. It’s so breathable, light & durable. But any DK weight yarn would work just fine for this top.

Materials
Lion Brand Comfy Cotton Blend  (2 skeins for S, 3 skeins for M/L/XL, 4 skeins for 2X/3X) – I used the colors Whipped Cream and Chai Latte
4.5 mm hook
yarn needle
scissors

Pattern notes
Stitches & Abbreviations – US terms
ch – chain
hdc – half double crochet
hdc blo – half double crochet back loop only
hdc flo – half double crochet front loop only
hdc2tog – half double crochet 2 together (hdc decrease)
hdc3tog – half double crochet 3 together

· ch 2 does not count as hdc

· The pattern is made as two panels: the front and back. They are then sewn together. The sleeves are joined and added in joined, turned rounds.

· To create the same color block striping pattern, change colors every 10 rows.

· I did not fasten off after each color. If you have an even number of rows for each stripe, the yarn can be carried up.

Gauge: 15 stitches alternating hdc blo & hdc flo x 11 rows = 4” x 4”

Sizes:
S, M, L, XL, 2X, 3X – The pattern is written in these sizes consecutively. Example, when the pattern gives the end of the row count as (68, 76, 84, 92, 100, 108 hdc), the 68 is for S, 76 is M, 84  is L, 92 is XL, 100 is 2X, 108 is 3X.

This tee is a close fitting with zero to negative ease.

Approximate Finished Size:
Bust: S (32”) M (36”) L (40”) XL (44”) 2X (48”) 3X (52”)
Width across the back: S (16”) M (18”) L (20”) XL (22”) 2X (24”) 3X (26”)
Length: S (21.5”) M (22.5”) L (23.5”) XL (24.5”) 2X (25.5”) 3X (26.5”)
Armhole Depth: S (6”) M (6.5”) L (7”) XL (7.5”) 2X (8”) 3X (8.5”)

Weave in other ends.

SEWING

Lay the front panel on top of the back. Wrong side out. (there isn’t really a right and wrong side, just whichever you like best)

Use the long ends to sew the shoulders closed with a whip stitch. (use stitch markers to line it up)

Use the long ends to sew the sides closed with a whip stitch (use stitch markers to line it up) Leave a 6, 6.5, 7, 7.5, 8, 8.5” (or your desired armhole size) space at the top for armholes.

Weave in all the ends.

Turn right side out.

SLEEVES

Join yarn to the bottom of an armhole.

You’ll be working evenly around the armhole, working into the side of the stitches. I alternated 1 sc in 1 hdc, then 2 sc in the next hdc.

Round 1: ch 1, sc evenly around the armhole, join to first stitch with sl st

Round 2: ch 2, turn, hdc blo in first stitch, *hdc flo in next, hdc blo in next* repeat from * to * around to last 3 stitches, hdc3tog, join to first stitch with sl st

Round 3: ch 2, turn, hdc blo in first stitch, hdc flo in next, *hdc blo in next, hdc flo in next* repeat from * to * around, join to first hdc with sl st

Repeat round 3 to Round 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18 (or until desired sleeve length)

Fasten off. Weave in the ends.

Repeat for other sleeve.

  1. I bought your new pattern “My Favorite Tee” yesterday. I am reading through the pattern before I go purchase the yarn and I am slightly confused about the quantities of yarn to purchase. The pattern says:

    Materials
    Lion Brand Comfy Cotton Blend (2 skeins for S, 3 skeins for M/L/XL, 4 skeins for 2X/3X) – I used the colors Whipped Cream and Chai Latte

    Does this mean that, if I am making size Small, I will buy one ball of Whipped Cream and one ball of Chai Latte for a total of two balls or I will buy two balls of Whipped Cream and two balls of Chai Latte for a total of four balls?

    Thank You

  2. The material requirements say: 3 skeins for sizes M/L/XL. So I need 1 of one color and 2 of the other? Which color uses the most yarn? I assume I would need 2 skeins of whichever color uses the most. I cannot tell by looking at the picture. Thanks.

  3. Thanks so much for posting this pattern, can’t wait to make it. I love the way you have written the pattern and provide pictures, much appreciated?

  4. I don’t know where you have been hiding because I have been looking for three years for this style of tee and am very happy I found this. I have now permanently tagged your site so I don’t lose it. Thank you for this and hopefully many more. Will send a picture when finished. Good luck and hope to see many more of your future projects.
