Notes

My submission-to-be for Very Shannon’s annual Tanks, Tops & Tees KAL.

I downloaded an updated version of the pattern (in May 2018) and have not encountered any of the issues pointed out by test knitters (re: sleeve division, etc.); these appear to have been addressed.

Mods/Notes:

  • Knit four rows of 1x1 ribbing at the sleeve cuffs.
  • Cast on and seamed armpit stitches (versus picking them up).
  • I am utterly baffled by the fit and yardage on this. My stitch gauge matches the pattern and the row gauge is a bit larger; however, I ended up with a cropped and boxy top that in no way matches the pattern photo.
  • In addition, I purchased the recommended yarn and used every last centimeter of it, but believe the top could have benefited from one additional skein each of the grey and yellow.

Update: Ordered two more skeins of yellow, frogged the hem and added length; see indoor photos. Much better!
