This chunky knitted T-shirt—for which the top of the sleeve literally forms the neckline—is the essence of minimalism. The yoke is worked along six points of increase; four occur along sleeve seams every other round, and two are worked directly in the center of the back and front, every other round. If you extend the sleeves, you get a comfy knitted sweatshirt.

  1. What technique should be used for M1 (make one)?

    In looking at the picture it looks like the M1 should be an increase that leaves a whole.

    There are like over 6 different M1 techniques. Whic one does the designer intend one use?

    I’ve gotten to row 25 and the little hole at the points is not showing.

    I’m doing a half hitch make one. And its an invisible increase.


  2. The pattern calls for Make 1 and Inc 1 but does not explain techinique to use.  I went to the glossary but that does not help.  Please clarify/explain technique.
