TUCKED-HEM CROP TOP
Several years ago, I designed a tea cozy using tucking, a form of knitted pleating, and loved the results. I “tucked” the idea in the back of my mind to use in a garment one day. Tucking takes time and patience and good lighting to be able see the stitches that need to be picked up, but it’s well worth the effort.
