Pin-Striped Tee https://jenjoycedesign.wordpress.com/2013/05/04/a-well-mannered-sweater-tee/

A light & summery tee, knit with two colors alternating every row, creating a very subtle pin-striped affect. This leaves many possibilities for your creative interpretation! Raglan decreases, single ribbed finish, and i-cord edging makes this tee a refined specimen among your spring & summer wardrobe.

Six garment sizes can actually outfit size 26” through 40” bust measurement, from child to adult. Yarn needed depending on size made is between 3 and 5 balls of (suggested) sock yarn.

Knitted in-the-round, uses provisional cast-on, raglan decreasing, ribbing w/ i-cord bind-off finish. It knits up easy while seeming to be much more complicated than it really is. Designed with sock yarn in mind for maximum elasticity and durability.

A little bit sheer, feminine, flattering & modest !

Yardage:  The yarn I’ve used has 231 yards per 50g ball. I suggest for most sizes 3 balls of MainColor (MC)and 2 of ContrastColor (CC); for larger 38, add an extra ball of CC, making 3 & 3, though it will be more than enough for CC. For sizes 28 & 30 you may only use 2 of MC and 1 of CC, or for shorter length overall.  However, I always think this is the perfect opportunity to buy well more than you’ll need, as the worst case scenario of having a couple of balls of sock yarn left over, is that you can knit a pair of socks with it, or a Mini Tee! If you’re in a bind , knitting a larger size and unsure, buy 3 balls of each.
Yardage: 600 – 1150 yards (549 – 1052 m)
Yarn substitutions suggested: Malabrigo Yarn Sock or  Madelinetosh Tosh Sock
Yarn weight: Fingering / 4 ply
Gauge:  6 stitches and 8 rows = 1 inch in Stockinette
Needle size : US 6 – 4.0 mm or size to obtain gauge.  US 4 – 3.5 mm for rib, or two sizes smaller than size to obtain gauge.
Sizes available: 28 (30, 32, 34, 36, 38) inches- actual garment at bust.
Fit:  Six garment sizes outfit size 26” through 40” bust measurement, to fit child, tween, teen, to medium adult.  
Prototype in photo is size 34.  Photos of modified version of this tee in size 32 modeled HERE  , and modeled in sizes 28 & 30 HERE .
