New Pattern Up - SweeTee
This little SweeTee has been driving me nuts and I am so glad I finally achieved what I wanted with it.
It's not the yarn, which is delicious, Silk Lace by Claudia in the color Cherries, 2 strands held together throughout.
If you know me at all, you know I love the details.
I love the stitch pattern, too, which gives a nice, slimming vertical stripe.
It was...you guessed it...the math!!!!
I had the hardest time grading this - the 14 st pattern repeat offset with an extra 5 sts and wanting to keep the center intact. Grrrr.
I even tried to hire someone to grade it for me. She told me some things just can't be graded. No kidding!
Finally I conceived of an alternative - knit the same exact thing on different sized needles and you end up with a different sized garment. So I was finally able to finish it.
And just in time for TNNA!
