From Susan — Knitting a Crinkle Top

Filed under: Updates — lv2knit @ 7:21 am

Have you ever seen these in a store?

They are absolutely teensy but fit [young, skinny girls] when they are put on.  That is the story of my Window to my Soul.  It looks like a child’s sweater but does fit when I try it on.  The problem is, I am not sure how big it will get when it is blocked.  And it is only the lace section that does this.  The stockinette skirt should behave normally.

I think I have about 3 more inches to go before the stockinette, but who knows??  ;)

  1. Quite a tantalizing eventuality. It will be interesting to see the outcome!

  2. I laughed so much at your analogy! I had a blouse in this fabric many moons ago;-) I am sure your sweater will be lovely!

  3. The armholes on mine were really small so I had to block the devil out of it in order for the top part to fit. Contrary to the note in Joji’s instructions it hasn’t hurt the lace pattern at all (see poor photo on my Ravelry page “tigermum”). If you choose to block yours less the skirt will have a gathered look where it meets the bodice which is very pretty. It’s equally pretty when not gathered, just an all round lovely project.
