through some trial and error, i learned how to knit the brioche stitch. i practiced it and worked up some swatches, which i then turned into beer bottle sweaters.
or “beer cozies”, if you prefer.
i don’t know why i didn’t think of making some of these before.
and then i pulled out an old pattern that i’ve been meaning to try for years – folkwear’s rosie the riveter. i made the shirt, and despite some errors on the actual pattern pieces and some slightly wonky directions, i think it turned out fine.
it’s a good thing i have a lot of sewing experience and could figure out what needed to be done.
i added a second pocket. goodness knows i love pockets.
the fabric is from ikea. kid stuff. fun!
