To Knit or not to Knit...Is that a Question?

« on: October 10, 2008 08:03:32 PM »


Pattern: Butterick 4347

Pattern Description:
Close-fitting top has long sleeves, neckline extending into collar or shawl collar

Pattern Sizing: Size Lrg

Fabric Used: Sophia Double Knit (67 percent Polyester 30 percent Rayon 3 percent Spandex)

Notions Used:
None

Pattern Alterations: Petite Alternations

I love the fabric!! The Sophia Double knit is to die for.  It is also pretty expensive.  I was happy to have bought it at 25% off so it wasnt THAT bad.  I am now on the constant hunt for this fabric on sale.

I also really like the color of the fabric.  I dont have very many garments with this coloring so it makes me feel refreshed for the fall.

I highly recommend this pattern as it was pretty easy.  Nothing too bad

Thanks everyone for the compliments

Do you have a serger that you use on the knit?

Yes I do have a serger and I love it.  You don't have to have one for knit fabric but it does make life a little easier
