Notes

A simple tomboy tee.

The fit is perfect, but I’d change:

  • saddle shoulder - should be narrower,
  • the beg of V-neck shaping an inch or two lower.
  • no stripes when joining fronts for V-neck or a way looser neckband.

This yarn is really so-so. Soft, good for kids’ knits and that’s all. Completely not worth its price.
It also gets really thin (esp. red) which really bothered me.


In August I ripped the ribbed neckband and replaced it with an I-cord one.
