Between waves of customers Carol has been exploring Ravelry and discovering all of the wonderful patterns posted by independent designers. She is finding some great stuff that I hadn’t seen yet! Here is one that she thought would be wonderful for summer knitting with some of our drapey cotton and cotton blends-
Carol has made TWO of these already and is talking about a third! It has a racer-back detail that is achieved by starting out with a certain number of stitches, dividing and working them separately for a bit, then joining them again. Since there are no sleeves, you can get a wonderful garment out of short yardage! After she made her first one, Carol realized she needed a wider back, so she added some stitches to the width of the T. She is thinking that she will make a third, adding a few extra stitches to the underarm for a bit more room. She is having fun adjusting the pattern to fit, “winging it” a bit.
Carol has inspired me to make one! Right, after I finish Vitamin D…. I’m eying the Mirasol Samp’a organic cotton for mine.
