First project for 2011-KS3740

I am starting the year with a KS pattern-3740. 



I made this previously but drafted short sleeves.  I also made a skirt to go with it.  I am going to make it long sleeved this time.

Cowl neck 3740

The fit of the pattern is perfected and it is one that I like to wear.  It has a cowl neckline.  The pattern for the collar is well drafted and works well the pattern bodice.

The fabric is one I purchased from over one year ago, perhaps closer to two years.  It has a border print along the selvage edge and the stretch of the fabric is from selvage to selvage.  This makes it a little challenging to use as a border print.  It can used that way as I recall reading a review of a top made using the border print at the bottom of the knit top.  Using it this way eliminates some of the stretch in the width and you would need to adjust your pattern size accordingly.

My plan is to use the border print to run lengthwise as seen in this photo with pattern laying on top.

  1. Happy New Year! I love the way you are laying this out and I like the colors and graphics in this one. Can't wait to see it!

  2. Happy New Year! I think your first project sounds like a winner. It will be interesting to see how the border print works out. I am hoping to play more with border fabrics, myself.

  3. Happy New Year! I like your using that border print - should be interesting.
