Wen's Tank Sweater


For my SIL's b-day, I made a tank sweater using the x-back pattern from Knitty.com. I finished the sweater in December, but found it to be WAY too big on her. This was my first attempt at knitting with ribbon yarn and found that it is much stretchier than I expected. My swatch was on gauge, but the final product dwarfed her little frame. So, I braved facing a new knitting skill - sewing side seams, cutting out the extra yarn, and then sewing ribbon over the raw edges. It worked perfectly. HURRAY!! Here's Wendy modeling her now-fitting birthday sweater.
