I love me a fast knit!

Leaf T-shirt came off the needles last Saturday, it only took 10 days to knit :-)  It’s been a while since I knit a top down ‘seamless’ pattern but boy are they easy. I can’t imagine wanting to knit anything with seams in it now.

I played around with the camera this morning and got some modeled shots!

Knit with 6 skeins of Classic Elite Four Seasons Cotton, you can see full details at my Ravelry page.  I like how this turned out but I do wish it had some shaping to it.

I like the ‘off the shoulder’ look but it can be worn on the shoulder too.  I wanted this top to be a bit longer than the ones I’ve previous made. I often find I’m pulling them down if they just sit below my waist, so this one is as long as most t-shirts I wear.

During the winter I’ll probably layer this with a t-shirt and then later maybe along sleeve T when it gets really cold. . .  which I wish was right now instead of the 100 degrees we have forecast!

Really cute!! and I just cut the top off of the sleeve, picked up stitihes, and re-knitted to sleeve cap shaping. It looks like it will work. Pix next week.

Looks great! Maybe you should knit another one and add some shaping. It would be super easy to do. Let me know if you want any help figuring it out.

So pretty, Denise! And aren't you smart to make it with cotton. I love the length too -- perfect!
