Hi everyone, I'm sort of new to reconstruction and stuff and I've been cutting up some old shirts for workout clothes and such. I saw the following photo and am interested in how this neckline was achieved and was wondering if you guys could help me figure it out.

This is, of course, for personal use only.

That looks like t-shirt braiding (which is less like braiding, and more like crochet).  Check out this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SeqOhG-oy7Y

yeah, I've been using that method a lot, but I can't seem to make the same gathered neckline effect.

It looks like she did the braiding and then went back and gathered all the cross pieces together in a second step.
