Anker's Summer Shirt
This knitting pattern is in English.
Anker's Summer Shirt is worked top-down. The yoke consists of segments of rib stitch with increases followed by classic raglan increases.
The pattern is written with the fact that the shirt will “grow” with wear (if you knit it in the suggested yarn or a similar blend in mind). When choosing a size, measure your bust circumference (at its widest point) and knit the size closest to your measurements, preferably with 0-5 cm / 0-2 inches of negative ease. When you have worn Anker’s Summer Shirt for a few hours, it will have expanded and it will have gotten to the right (and a bit loser) fit. For instance, a size XS has a chest circumference of 82 cm upon completion, but after it has been used for a bit the circumference will be 88 cm (i.e. it grows about 6 cm). After washing, the size will be close to the original size. The length will not change significantly. It is recommended to try on the shirt as progress to get the perfect length for your body - some people have a longer torso and some people have a shorter torso.
