Make 2 panels like this.

Assembly step:
Sew the center seam together up the middle and in the middle of the back as well

Bottom band:

Attach your yarn at the corner of the panels that you sewed together. DC along the edge of the front side, then Continue DC stitches along the side of the Back edge to make it attached as a circle to wrap around the mid section. (See video tutorial for visual instructions). Sl st to first st and then ch 2 and continue onto next row.

I did 6 rounds total of 128 sts all around for each row.

You can continue to do more rows to make your shirt longer if you’d like.

Sew up the sides to make the arm holes smaller if you’d like! Leave it open for a more free feel!

Weave in all ends. Enjoy!
