Tee Rex

my second mandel

this tee is quite royal, hence the name tee rex
i'm so pleased with the outcome, the fit is perfect now
the yarn was the right choice and the stripes are so sweet;))

here's a short summary of what i did:
yarn: fortissima alpaka by Schoeller & Stahl
needles: 3mm for saddles and ribbing
4mm for body and sleeves

gauge: 24 sts = 4 in
one row stripes using instructions 
from the treeline cardigan [purlbee]
used XS numbers for co and joining the saddles
4 more incs for the sleeves
v-neck incs every 4th row then, while increasing bodysts
to shape the sleeves, in every 2nd row
2 more bodyincs [before sleeve separating] due to my different gauge my pleats have more rows
ended with ktbl, p1 for about 1 in
shortsleeves ended with 3 rounds of twisted ribs
picked up sts around the neckline from the right side
with 3 mm needles; 1 st per row
ktbl, p1 for 5 rounds

now waiting for the walnuss pattern to be ready to test...


have a nice weekend
