… and amande tee …

And here comes amande tee, the 3rd pattern in the amande series

Amande tee is a pullover or a tee with a very unusual construction, similar to her sisters amandine cardigan and amande cardigan here and here

It is worked seamlessly, as the amande cardigan, in the round from the shouldertop downwards and sideways. A bit tricky to start the special shoulder shaping, but after that it’s an easy knit. Body and the sleeves are worked in the round from the top down.
The pattern includes instructions for short sleeves or 3/4 and long sleeves with matching elbow patches.

It is preferable to work with two different colors to show off the unique construction.
