I worked a long time on this Chiton Pullover. After modifying the pattern to make a larger than specified size, it looks the way I expected it to look. What I wasn’t expecting was how the drape of the cotton yarn would accentuate that spare tire around my middle. Damn!
I’ve never been this heavy before, and I haven’t had to deal with the issue of tummy roll. I’ve seen women out shopping with their rolls hanging out, but I can’t bring myself to wear this sweater in public… unless I lose that roll. Maybe if I cut it off below the bust and worked down in a peasant blouse shape. Maybe, but I’m not sure what the cowl neck would look like on a peasant blouse.
PS: The picture shows the shoulder seams before finishing. I use little hair clips to hold it together so I can try it on. This is not the way the seams will look, if they are ever finished.
PPS: I like the yarn. It’s Cascade Ultra Pima 100% cotton. It has a nice shine and drape. Any cotton is hard on my hands to work, and this was no exception.
