Quick & Easy knitted T
This pattern is fairly easy, you only need to know how to knit and purl, but it can be tricky when going from knitting on the round to knitting back to straight needles. You can do it!!

I wear a size small and it's a bit stretchy so this would probably fit s/m. It actually would also fit a Large because of the stretchy material but if you're worried just add a few stitches when casting on and it should be fine.

  • Step 1

    With size 8 needles cast on 70 stitches and attach in the round (be careful not to twist stitches!! I did this my first time casting this project on and had to take it all out after 5 rows when I noticed).

  • Step 2

    Work in a rib of Knit 1, Purl 1 for the row. Keep ribbing in this manner for 5 rows.

  • Step 3

    Change to size 15 needles, decrease 1 stitch every 10 stitches by knitting two together.

    You should now have 63 stitches at the end of this row (if you have more just decrease on next row until you have 63 stitches, if you have less that's probably fine, it's stretchy!)

  • Step 4

    You will now just knit until your piece measures 7 inches (this should look like stockinette stitch since you're knitting on the round)

    Step 5

    Switch to neon yellow yarn and knit 1 row

    divide the piece in half and put 30 stitches on another needle or on waste yarn and forget about it for a while, you'll be knitting each side separately from this point on

  • Step 6

    cast on 10 more stitches at the beginning of the row (this will be a sleeve), purl across this row until you get to the end.

    For the next row, cast on 10 stitches at the beginning (This is your other sleeve) now knit those stitches and continue to knit the rest of the row

    Step 7

    You should have something that resembles a T shape

    Keep knitting in stockinette stitches (knit one row, purl the next) for about 18 rows.

    You can eye it and see it it looks long enough to fit your arms or not, if not work in a few more rows and end with a purl row

  • Step 8

    Move your work back to the size 8 needles and bind off: this will give it a nice smaller bind off rather than a messier look you would get with the larger needles - make sure that you're binding off on a row that you are supposed to 'knit' and not purl, this will give the outside of your shirt a really nice edge for the collar and the sleeves will look cool when sewn together

  • Step 9

    Repeat in this manner on the other half of the shirt
