I so love this project! As a neophyte knitter I often find myself wanting to take on more ambitious projects for the sake of furthering my skills. But I also have to be careful that they not be way beyond my current abilities that I give up in frustration.
Despite my expectations however, this pattern was quite easy to follow and execute. I give props to the writer who wrote clear & straightforward instructions – believe me, this matters a lot! And to have been able to make something like this, something I’m actually going to wear, feels uh-mazing!
This tee was a great beginner exercise in shaping (I am still raving about how well the arm & neck shaping came out), as well as picking up stitches for finishing.
Shaping and finishing are skills that daunt me, and I want to understand them so they no longer scare me away from creating my masterpieces.
