On a Whim by Amy Herzog
Sometimes, a knitter just needs to throw deadlines to the wind and knit something new. At least, that's how I felt when I took a break from mad book deadline knitting and whipped up these simple tees. On A Whim is a super-simple, super-wearable basic tee shirt of a sweater, with a flattering scoop neck and an easygoing a-line shape.
It features a slightly-wider-than-average neckline, and is shown in a long sweater length and 3/4 sleeves on Amy, and tunic length and elbow sleeves on Morgan. But you can choose whatever combination of lengths you like! On A Whim is shown here in two different Indigodragonfly yarns, and the subtle shifts of the color compliment the simple silhouette.
On a Whim is available in a-line, hourglass, straight, and tapered silhouettes. Please see our page on silhouettes for a full explaination of silhouettes in Customfit.
Morgan's sample is shown in Indigodragonfly's MCS Sock in the color "Only the exact phrase I used was don't (Inara)". The fingering weight fabric, blended with a generous amount of silk, results in an incredibly floaty garment that is perfect for warmer seasons. For a standard women's size 30 (32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 46, 50, 54, 58, 62)" elbow-sleeve sweater in Amy's gauge of 7 stitches per inch, you'll need approximately 3 (4, 4, 4, 5, 5, 5, 6, 6, 7, 8, 8) hanks of MCS.
Amy's sample is shown in Indigodragonfly's Mergoat Worsted, in the special colorway "The Brain in Maine Feigns Trading Pain for Skeins". The worsted-weight version is snuggly, substantial, and perfect for cold days.For a standard women's size 30 (32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 46, 50, 54, 58, 62)" 3/4-sleeve sweater in Amy's gauge of 5 stitches per inch, you'll need approximately 5 (6, 6, 6, 7, 7, 8, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12) hanks of Mergoat Worsted.
