PROGRESS: Knitting for Hawaii
Almost done, but not quite. I still have to do 2 more piping bands of green at top and bottom, so that all of the orange has piping around it. For knitters, it's because this was knitted in the round and the color change and stitch change really shows up that jog. UGH! It really bothers me. The piping disguises it.
This is from Stefanie Japel's pattern, Cleo. I modified it. I shortened mine greatly...the original pattern has this at tunic length, and on me it snugged around the booty with the orange stripe under the rear. Not favorable for the junk in MY trunk! LOL I made mine tank length.
I'm sewing a cami in mine as a lining, after cutting off the cami straps.
Probably will have to finish this on the plane to Honolulu, I'm pretty much out of time.
