I used design elements from my favorite RTW t-shirt to modify an existing pattern. The seam allowances in the yoke overlap creating texture when the knit rolls. I amplify this effect by adding narrow strips of contrasting fabric to yoke edges. Sleeves and bottom edge are not hemmed so the fabric will roll.
The body is bamboo/cotton, shoulder/yoke area is 100% cotton, and neckband the star and yoke contrasting strips are rayon/lycra/cotton blend.
