opine, please!

do you think my new Brooks Farm Four Play is too ‘drapey’ for this pattern?

  1. I used Four Play to make Annie Modesitt’s corset pattern. It worked fine, but it does grow when you wash it, so I’d be sure to wash and block your swatch. I need to shrink my corset back up a bit after washing and then I overblocked the thing.

  2. I love it! I think the Four Play might be a little more drapey than what was used for the pictured sweater, but I don’t see that as a bad thing. ; ) Go for it!!!

  3. Argh! I hate to be the one to toss a damp blanket on this one, but I would be a little worried with the silk content (which may or may not hold its shape very well) and the *yoke* of the sweater being knit horizontally. Will it stretch too much over time? Something to think about. You could swatch, block, then clothespin your swatch to a hanger with a little bit of weight on the bottom (not a lot-some clothespins or pin something to it) and see how it wears over a week or so. You know, side to side on the swatch. Anywho. Sorry to be a voice of reason, but I’d hate for you to love the sweater to start and after time have it grow and grow.
