Yes, I know, it looks strange. And I'm hoping it'll still look unusual once finished and arranged in its "crushed" styling. For those seeing this for the first time, my cowl is based on Tomoko Nakamichi's "Crushed Can" top from her book Pattern Magic: Stretch Fabrics.
|You can picture this as a cowl. Right?|
Though I really love the fabric and the colors I chose, I'm now wishing I'd chosen one of my fabrics with more contrasting colors for this project. These colors and points are looking rather subtle to me at the moment. (Subtlety is relative.)
|A lens and glass paperweight were used to hold down the paper pattern pieces. I cut the sweater knit fabric using my handy power scissors.|
I'll let you know.
