We consider a simple rescattering mechanism to calculate a leading twist T-odd pion fragmentation function, a favored candidate for filtering the transversity properties of the nucleon. We evaluate the single spin azimuthal asymmetry for a transversely polarized target in semi-inclusive deep inelastic scattering (for HERMES kinematics). Additionally, we calculate the double T-odd cos2Φ asymmetry in this framework.
