Seriously readers, I need help. I have this stack of knits in my stash, and some of them are just NOT telling me what they want to become when they grow up. Does that ever happen to you? You buy a fabric that speaks to you in the store, but at home it gets a little feisty and doesn’t want to play nice!
I guess you can tell my color palette at least. Look at me going all crazy with that touch o’teal one! 😉
This big chunky sweatery-textured-not-too-stretchy knit is really stumping me. I thought when I ordered it I would makeÂ Pamela’s Patterns Banded Front Cardigan, but I think it might be too thick for that. ItÂ doesn’t drape much at all, so too much fullness is out. Maybe I should switch toÂ one of these 2Â coat style patterns if I have enough fabric? Other ideas?
I love this print, and love the colors. Not sure if it has enough drape for a pretty cowl….maybe a simple Christine Jonson Basewear Two T-shirt would be better for this one? And yes, I do already own the CJ pattern, but didn’t pluck it out for consideration since I was trying to step outside my plain, TNT T-shirt rut. I think the fabric is a either cotton + lycra or a combo rayon+cotton+lycra. A little beefier than most straight rayon knits.
Despite my earlier comment, I was originally thinking a plain round-neck T for this silky ITY knit…..but am reconsidering. Maybe the McCalls 6963 shown on the grey graphic knit aboveÂ is calling this guy’s name instead. Hey, chatting with y’all is helping! 😉
Sparkly, metallic-y sweater knit. Pretty sure this needs to be a drapey cardigan. Oh look! I just happen to own Pamela’s Patterns Draped Front Cardigan pattern. Maybe I should use it yet again, eh?!? I think I have 2 (possibly 3) of these sweaters in my closet right now. LOVE this pattern.
Am I in a cowl neck rut now? I do own the Style Arc Issy top, as well as the Tootsie….but haven’t tried either of them yet. Both are pretty popular on PR,and sinceÂ I am a Style Arc addictÂ they would be kind of a no-brainer.
Are you “stuck” trying to decide what pattern to use on for one (or more!) of your projects? Please tell me I am not theÂ only one who buys fabric with a specific planÂ in mind, only to forget or change my mind!
