Notes: I sorta love this pattern and yarn combo and I really really wanted this top to work out. I love the simplicity of the pattern repeat and the colour I chose fits perfectly in my existing wardrobe. In other words, I picked a colour I will actually wear! This top is a great summer wardrobe staple. I’d like to wear it with jeans or over a black bathing suit. But, let’s be honest… Anyone with a trained eye can see that this top is too big for me but I desperately wanted to make it work. So I tried photographing different angles and tucks to gather the fabric. Then I realised, actually it’s important to share this because I did my gauge swatch and I measured my bust. I made a size 3 (bust 100-108cm) and I fit right in the middle 105 cm. And yet, the results are too much fabric to try to hide, too long across the neckline and gaping armholes. I would suggest to knit down a size if you are unsure or between sizes. So the question is, do I frog and re knit? Do I do a cheeky hack with the sewing machine? What’s your favourite way to alter your knit pieces so they do truly fit just right?
