The Anker Tee is made using a 4ply fingering yarn that is worked from the top down. The yoke is worked in sections of rib with increases in the round, followed by classic raglan increases when the stockinette stitch section begins. The sleeves are worked at the end, either on double-pointed needles or on circular needles using the Magic Loop technique. Anker Tee has no finishing other than weaving in ends.
