|PMB Knit Cardigan and tank top|
This is my January project. I drafted the pattern using PMB Knit program. It is a basic cardigan and a shell top. I've used these patterns before. This time I made some changes to see if I like the fit better. I had originally drafted the pattern with a v-neck but changed it to a scoop neck so it would work better with the cardigan. If this turns out well, I can use the pattern as a sloper and just draft different front pattern pieces. The program uses a dartless block but I need darts in knit tops. My dart is really small so I will just ease it into the side seams.
The only change that I made to the pattern was to narrow the shoulders of the cardigan. I have a full bust but very narrow shoulders. The knit program will not draft a shoulder seam that fits me so I have to manually change the pattern. You can change the shoulder length but I can't figure how to do it when the garment has sleeves. I may to tweak it a little but more during the construction. I cut the pattern out with 1inch side seams. I've been making myself baste the side seams to check fit first. Sometimes I forget and I'm not thrilled with the final garment.
