The neck is too big for me

NanaKathy--my neck seemed very loose when I finished my tee.  If you can crochet, just do a row of single crochet around it, skipping a stitch every once in awhile.  It makes the neckline much firmer.

Sorry I haven't posted sooner. I got sick (nasty flu with lingering cough and malaise), so I've had a lot of knitting time. I'm normally an outrageously nonmonogamous knitter, but wasn't able to concentrate on anything too complicated when I was feeling crappy. So I got quite a bit done on this tee. Then I got jury duty. So I changed out my metal needles for plastic ones and headed off to court with my tee. Consequently, I finished this a lot sooner than I expected. I actually finished about a week ago, but haven't had the energy to block it. I used a bamboo-cotton blend (Valley Yarns Southwick), which I knew would grow. So I made it small and intended to wet block it. Today I decided to steam block it and take a photo.

I cast on for the largest child's size, modified the yoke increases to get the smallest adult size. My mods are detailed on my Ravelry project page (I'm martinezknitter there).

Sorry for the long post. I'll post a photo in another post. (My iPad is misbehaving!)

I've tried unsuccessfully to post my photo, so decided to include a link to my Ravelry project page instead. (@&$# technology!) Sorry for the inconvenience.

I can't seem to get the color right. It's a deep royal purple.

Finished. Child size 4. Knitted the garter ribs on size 4 needles, the ruching and stockinette stitch on size 5. The yarn is Plymouth Dreambaby DK. I bought the yarn about 4 years ago and was happy to find a project for it. The pattern was really easy to follow and I'm pleased with the result. The only modifications I made was to do the increases for the ruching in every other stitch, not every one, and to leave out the keyhole.

Karen, I think we're making the same tee! I'm also using Southwick, but in Blue Mist, and did the same size altering that you did. Yours came out beautifully! I just have to bind off and do the I-cord on the keyhole, which will hopefully happen tomorrow, as this is my Easter outfit.

Your tee turned out beautifully and I love the colors!!  What increases did you use for Row 21?  M1's or kfb?  I just had to frog seveal rows as my increases didn't look very good and I discovered a dropped stitch Sad Thank you!! Jeanie

Wow! I love it. You did a wonderful job. I too have a deep purple but I just finished the runches this morning. I am about to try it on...fingers crossed. I hope mine turns out as well as yours.

Karen, Yours is gorgeous!  I love the color.  Please tell me what increases you used on Row 21.  I am sorry to keep asking but have just gotten back there and hate to stop. Thanks!!

Tammy from Georgia here. I posted in the wrong place .... oops but hopefully I in the correct "neck of the woods" now. I am late getting in on this - just ordered the pattern today! So, I suppose I will be dragging along behind everyone - better late than never. Cannot wait to get started! Big Smile
