SEPARATED AT BIRTH

[ported repost of material appearing on 12 June 2006]

My version of Joan McGowan-Michael’s White Lies Shapely Tee – a semi fitted tee shape with a shaped waste and bust darts, used with the optional set-in sleeves (excellent pattern, and most graciously on Joan’s part – available free). Completed April 24th, 2004 and blogged about extensively here. Berroco Suede ribbon yarn, featuring two rounds of B. Walker’s Indian Cross Stitch around the gently contoured bottom hem, one turn of it around the scoop neck collar, and one at the bottom edge of the short sleeves:

Compare this from the latest issue of Knitters. Tee shape, ribbon yarn, two rounds of B. Walker’s Indian Stitch around the hem, one around the crew neck, and one around the sleeve hems. Plus a texture stitch in the body that’s almost invisible in the photos.

Mine fits better.
