I've been trying to overcome my fear of knits. I've sewed a few pants for my son and finally decided to tackle a shirt. It took lots of thinking and trial and error but I am pretty pleased with myself.
The Hounds-tooth Shirt
I used a old shirt I found at D.I. and just traced one she already had that fit her well for the pattern.
I know this picture is a bit blurry but I wanted to share it because I'm not sure why that neck looks so wonky. Any ideas? I used rib knitting around the neck for the first time ever! Do you need to stretch it and then pin? Or maybe it was how I traced out the pattern? Any suggestions would be much appreciated. :)
Overall I really like it. I learned a lot and am just glad my first attempt is wearable. :) Here's to hoping shirt number two is even better than the first.
