~ Pattern by Little Lizard King ~
Hi there!! I am so excited to be on Little Lizard King's Perfect Ten Knit Top Blog Tour!! When this top was in testing, I pretty much begged Cassie to let me colorblock my version. She said yes -- as long as I agreed to share my tutorial during the blog tour. Soooo, here I am!! Let's get this party started!
Colorblocking is actually rather easy! Follow these simple steps, and you'll want to colorblock ALL.THE.THINGS!
How to Colorblock the Perfect Ten Knit Top*
*these instructions are using the hemband option for the third color
Once your bodice pieces are colorblocked, sew together according to the pattern instructions. If you would like to colorblock your sleeves like I did, simply repeat the concept on your sleeve pieces. I used the short-sleeved and 3/4-sleeve lines provided and simply added my seam allowances (instruction 2) to each "new" pattern piece. Once your sleeves are pieced together and your seams are topstitched, sew according to the pattern instructions.
My daughter has so much love for her new shirt!
