My husband picked out this turquoise and grey striped knit and asked if i would make him a shirt from it. I didn’t use a bought pattern. Instead I traced around an old t-shirt he loved the fit of, refined the lines and then added seam allowance. I used a twin needle to hem with and to secure the neck band to the shirt. I think he looks pretty cute in it :) As usual, you can see more photos and details on my blog DapperDuds
