I wonder if the magazine contains instructions for cutting the pieces? If it is just the basic tee pattern I could use one I already have and make patchwork yardage out of my knit scraps. I sippose to be harmonious one needs to have some coomon theme in colours. I suspect there is a great deal more art in this than would appear initially.
I wonder if anyone actually made this as the patchwork version, and if so if I could see the photos of their projects?
I now cannot bear to throw away my knit scraps as I am imagining a fabulous casual top like this!
I suppose a start would be to sort my knit scraps by base colour and see what speaks to me. It could be a while before anything actually pops out of the sewing room though.
Someone who has this kindly told me.
It is a basic t-shirt, it shares the back and sleeves from #11 and #13 in the same issue. The instructions say that you should preshrink and press your knits, trace single layer front and back pattern pieces and draw the horizontal lines from the pattern markings and the vertical lines for the patchwork by eye. Then cut pieces and sew for each row, then sew the rows together, then cut out the front, back and sleeves.
Looking at the line drawing, there is definitely a pattern and a balance to the patchwork. It's based on horizontal rows divided unequally in to three or four parts. The sleeves are just horizontal rows, no vertical divisions.
