I had taken a top that was cut out which I wanted some help with fitting and then fabric for another 3 tops.
On the 2nd evening I pulled out this camel coloured knit which I purchased during my US trip back in 2011 and had plans to make the cowl neck version of KS 3740 my TNT knit top. Unfortunately there wasn’t enough fabric for the cowl from the pattern, but as this fabric had fantastic drape I really wanted a cowl neck of some sort.
|You can see the fabric on the table.|
Thankfully one of the ladies in the group had brought along her copy of Knits for Real People by Palmer Pletsch (my copy was in my bookcase at home) and I found the instructions on how to draft a skewed cowl collar (wow I just found this link) which as long as I didn’t want it as deep and happy for an extra seam it worked perfectly for the amount of fabric I had.
The best bit I was finished by lunchtime the next day, very happy indeed.
How I wore it to work the other week.
Now to get photos of the other two tops I made prior to this one!
