The Maude Tee is worked seamlessly from the top down. First the collar is worked, then the yoke and finally the body and sleeves. The collar is worked in the round so that it has stockinette stitch with the RS facing on both the front and back side. The button plackets are worked in double knitting, so it also looks like stockinette stitch with the RS facing on both sides. The neckline is shaped by working short rows. The yoke itself is worked with raglan increases.
Note that the pattern contains techniques such as Judy’s Magic Cast On, German Short Rows and double knitting, and several of the techniques are used at the same time – so take care to read the pattern thoroughly step by step as you are knitting, especially when working the yoke.
Begin by working a swatch to determine which needle size you need to achieve the correct gauge.
The Maude Tee is designed to have approx. 10 cm [4 inches] of positive ease, meaning it is designed to be 10 cm [4 inches] larger in circumference than your bust measurement. The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) 5XL are designed to fit a bust circumference of 80-85 (85-90) 90-95 (95-100) 100-110 (110-120) 120-130 (130-140) 140-150 cm [31½-33½ (33½-35½) 35½-37½ (37½-39½) 39½-43¼ (43¼-47¼) 47¼-51¼ (51¼-55) 55-59 inches]. The measurements for the finished garment are on the front page of the pattern. Note that these measurements are only achieved if the design is knitted in the correct gauge. Before beginning your project, measure yourself to determine which size will fit you the best. For example, if you measure 90 cm [35½ inches] around your bust (or around the widest part on your upper body) you should knit a size S. A size S sweater has a bust circumference of 99 cm [39 inches] which in the given example would give you 9 cm [3½ inches] of positive ease.
