My first try at working with stretch material. I shortened the sleeves to 3/4 and also shortened the hood slightly. I don’t think it usually gapes at the front it’s only because my husband gave me about 30secs camera time before he wanted to return to photographing the amount of broad beans we picked. I also have suspicions that my dog is a vegetarian…..all in all the top was quick and easy using a double needle (not quite lucky enough to have an overlocker yet)
some sort of stretch – I’m not up with the play on knit material yet there seems to be so many different kinds.
