Summer stripes on stockinette create a clean, playful look and this (almost) seamless, boxy tee adds delicate eyelet bands to the hem and sleeves. This top is casual and comfortable to wear with sleeves knit as an extension of the body and shaped to follow the curves of the arm.

Beachside Tee is worked in one piece, in the round from the bottom up, divided at the armholes. Front and back are then worked flat and joined with a three-needle bind off. Body extensions are created at the armholes for the deeply-sloped drop-shoulder sleeves, which are shaped with short rows. There are 2 short 6-stitch seams under each armhole.

Sample is size 42”; model is 34.5”
