|The houndstooth is a double knit jacquard, -- no floats on the inside.|
I've used one of the techniques from Zipper Ripple, however. I made the shoulders super stable so that the weight of the fabric won't stretch the shoulders.
Here's how I did the shoulders: I fused a strip of interfacing to the wrong side of the front shoulder seam in lieu of any stay tape or transparent elastic. This first step is the same as the Hip to Be Square sweater. I find fusible interfacing amazingly easy to use, and I love its availability in many weights. The next step was to stitch the shoulder seam (I used my serger.) right sides together, and press the seam toward the back of the sweater. I then turned the shoulder to the right side and top stitched, holding down the seam allowance.
