And now back to our regularly scheduled patterning!
We're putting the tummy panel of our knit top on paper. For this part, you'll want a ruler, a pen or pencil and the paper you used last time. We'll also make a little adjustment to our back pattern, so drag that out from wherever you stashed it.
Here are the steps in photo format:
Smooth straight lines and smooth curves makes for smooth seam lines. If you draw in jagged or bumpy lines, you'll get a jagged or bumpy looking finished product. So keep it smooth unless you really want those bumps!
Maybe you don't need all of this information written on your pattern. Your memory may be better than mine. All I'm saying is that writing it down makes SURE you won't forget it.
Voila! You've patterned a back panel and a tummy panel. Next time we'll work on the bust panels.
