The Mysterious Case of the Missing Tee
Hey, Ripple. Are you comfortable? I had some help seaming up the "Missing Tee" last night. And after much trial and tribulation, some false starts and whatnot, I finally got it seamed up and the neck ribbing done! Pattern: "The Mysterious Case of the Missing Tee" from "The Yarn Girls' Guide to Beyond the Basics" Yarn: Berroco Touche (Blue - 7906 Green - 7930 White - 7900) Needles: Ribbing US 6 Body 8 (pattern called for 5's and 7's but I subbed the yarn and it knits at 5 stitches to the inch on 8's so screw the pattern) Here's a more detailed pic: And the neck. The neck is a wee tight. But I can get my head through it. I blame the pattern for that. I even skipped a row of ribbing. Bah. I was going to lengthen the pattern, as you saw in my original post about it - the pic leads you to believe it's going to be a belly shirt. But no, it all was fine the way it was patterned out. I think that model is a medium and they stuck her in a small. Yay! My first fitted thing with arms! For me! Yay!
