Stylearc Kendall Knit Top
To trial a new pattern I try to find either remnants or op shop fabrics in my collection because there is no guarantee the pattern is going to be a keeper and Stylearc Kendall is no exception.
I ordered a size 8 pattern and found a piece of purple merino and red synthetic knit in my remnant stash to trial the pattern out.
This top is actually a mixed bag. I love the collar and the fit of the sleeves but find the body is a bit big. The yoke also pulls upwards and I think this has something to do with the way the collar sits. I love this collar and would like to use this part of the pattern again but probably wouldn't make the top again in it's present form. I would need to think about how I make the collar work without the dragging but if I could get it to work, it would make a lovely collar for a winter knit dress.
