Sammensat T is a well-fitted plain and simple modified raglan tee with clean edges and narrow sleeves.
Sammensat T is worked from the top down with possibility to adjust the length of the sleeves and the body.
Sammensat T is worked with a wide round neck and no ribbings at the body and sleeves.
The work starts with cast on stitches for the neck and afterward short-rows for a lowered neckline. The increases for yoke and arms create curved raglan lines and this construction gives a better fit and prevents unflattering bulks at the body and arms. After finishing the yoke, the sleeves are separated and placed on hold, and the body is worked in stockinette stitch until bind off. The sleeves are worked one at a time by transferring the stitches from waste yarn to the working needle and knitting in rounds (with optional decreases for a long sleeve version) to bind off.
Sizes XS (S, M, L) (XL, 2XL, 3XL, 4XL)
Sammensat T is worn with a positive ease at the bust of approx 0-15cm/0-6”.
If no ease is preferred at the bust circumference, I recommend for the best fit of the t-shirt that you measure your upper arm circumference, too. The sleeves are narrow.
