Gauge: 22 sts and 34 rnds over 4”/ 10cm using US 5/ 4mm circular needles. If substituting yarn, make sure your blocked stitch gauge matches and follow the “If substituting yarn” sections throughout the pattern.
Minimal finishing is key to this design! Knit in the round seamlessly from the bottom up, the shoulders are joined with the three needle bind off method. To save finishing stitches, an I-cord bind off method is used for the underarms and neck.
