Print the template and pin it to your knit fabric. The knit fabric should be folded so you cut two pieces from the pattern.

Pin the knit fabric together (right sides facing) and sew up the bottom of the arm and down the side. Then repeat this on the other arm. Lastly, sew along the top edge on both sides (leaving the neck hole open.) Turn the shirt right side out and then using your hem tape iron the arm holes under 1/’4″. You can use the HeatnBond® Soft Stretch Lite Hem tape for the neck and bottom hem or you can use your sewing machine.
