I knitted this on the Knitmaster 302 from a cone of Bramwell Celebration 25 that I bought from Ebay. The yarn is 92% acrylic, 8% nylon and it’s like string. When it was first knitted up the fabric felt a bit stiff and didn’t drape very well. After washing it improved but I’m still not that happy with it. I have a feeling it’s going to be one of those things that gets bigger the longer you wear it and you know how annoying they can be.
The pattern is from one of the pattern cards included with the 302. It’s a tuck stitch, tucking every second stitch for one row, then one row plain, then tucking the same stitches the following row and so on – at least I think that’s what it is, I haven’t quite figured out exactly what the different pattern dials do on that machine. I could have used the purl side as the right side but thought the plain side looked better.
Here’s a close up of the pattern:
I might try very lightly steaming it but I’m a bit reluctant to in case I go over the top and kill it completely.
I am quite disappointed with this top as it didn’t turn out the way I’d hoped it would. Never mind.
Talk to you later,
