Robbie Tee Pattern for All

Robbie Tee Pattern for All

Is there anything more universally wearable than a Tshirt these days?  

We didn't think so. So we created the Robbie Tee. It was the 1st design of the ALL series - a trio of 3 designs for everyone in the most iconic and versatile styles. All universally flattering. Bring it down to the most essential with the softest organic cotton yarn LOOP.  Yet sometimes it's the most simple things that take the longest to perfect and this Robbie tee was no different. I may have to say we spent the most amount of time to perfect this design compare to anything we've ever done thus far. The stitches count, the neck openings, sleeves and sizing all needed extra attention and care. We hope you enjoy it as much as we loved creating it. <3

    What does it mean in row 2 front panel at the beginning when it says: Row 2 – 8 (8, 10, 10, 12), continue to work in 1 × 1 rib. Does the 8 mean knit 8 and then continue with knit purl knit purl?
