Following on from the success of Stylearc's Kim Swing Top in a heavier weight knit than the pattern suggested, I've gone for an even bulkier knit. The fabric is a soft and warm Italian wool knit from Rathdowne Fabrics. The adaptations I made to the pattern were: shortened the body by 6 cms, lengthened the sleeves and made the neckband 30cms wide. I used the walking foot on the machine to sew the seams before neatening them on the overlocker. I really like the collar as it rolls perfectly around the neck at just the height I wanted.
