One day about a year ago I decided I'd had enough of letting that mean girl voice in my head dictate what I wore. I WANT to make and wear crop tops, and so I shall. I quashed that mean voice. I embraced my body as it is now.
What I REALLY hope is that I can encourage other people to do the same. When people say “oh, I can’t wear that! It’s a crop top!” I feel a sadness. Why can’t they? If they really want to?
So I designed TPCT to be accessible to newer as well as more experienced knitters. I made sure that I included a whole bunch of modification options so you can make it look as YOU as possible.
I included blank charts for yoke modifications, the option for different bust shaping, notes on where you can lengthen the top, and instructions for elbow length sleeves.
You can pick up TPCT here.
And if you're thinking of knitting it up, please join the KAL. You'll find a great community of knitters and support, and I'll be there to help you with any mod ideas you have.
Stay tuned the rest of this week here on the blog for TPCT Week! We'll be talking about:
- selecting yarn and yarn substitutions
- tips and ideas on styling
- modification options
- and you'll hear testimonials from some testers about their TPCT experience
Hope to see you there!
