So we decided a simple fitted tank top will work well to meet her needs.
1. Pattern has to be simple mindless knitting so that she does not have to refer to the pattern sheet much.
2. Have the project be knit in the round to eliminate seaming.
3. Create a slimming silhouette by the use of ribbing for a pulled-in effect.
The yarn is a lovely cushy yarn and Jacquelyn was totally enjoying the knitting process. And it certainly helped when the Addi knitting needles are in use. The smooth joins make it a cinch to knit circularly. In fact, when it came to the upper bodice, we decided to go for a simple stockinette pattern.
In fact, it was knitted up fairly quickly towards the end as Jacquelyn was so excited at the prospect of being able to wear the finished project.
With a fairly chunky ribbed border around the neckline and the armholes, the tank top looks fabulous!
This blouse has a very flattering fit. In fact, it fits Jacquelyn to a T. [We had decided to put it on the mannequin the other day as Jac decided that she wasn't appropriately dressed to model the FO the other day.]
In fact, I love the look of this tank top. See how the ribbing skims the body curves?
Like I have always said, gorgeous looking knits do not have to possess complicated or highly detailed patterning. What you really need is to have good fitting and even knitting tension to get a lovely project piece that can get you lots of compliments!
