Ahoy-Linden!

It's only me on a bloomin' barge wearing my  Grainline Linden.



I adore this pattern! So easy to make and sizing is spot on.  I did lengthen as usual but no other alterations necessary.  I used my overlocker to assemble the entire thing and a twin needle to coverstitch the neck and hem.  Pattern matching is zero but as I you can see in the photos I don't give two hoots!


Took me awhile to source the cuffing and hem band fabric that I wanted but I found some black sweatshirt fabric on ebay - job's a good un'.  The patterned fabric is from Fabricgodmother and it's so snuggly and warm.  There's not much stretch in it so I can't push the sleeves up my arms but I reckon a larger size would solve that.


Spot of mooring


Instax camera fun, aye aye captain!
