Scout! Scout! Knit it all Out!

It’s safe to say that I LOVE IT!! In fact, I’ll be wearing it to work tomorrow ;o)

Don’t worry, it was worn for about twenty minutes to snap pictures. My little daughter is now the official photographer of the family! These are damn good pics for a 6 1/2 year-old!

I made this little headband/scarf/thing-y out of a scrap of fabric leftover from my Hummingbird! It was a sewing with stripes kind of night.

Scout! Scout! Knit it all Out!

I’m so jazzed that the sew-along was such a success!! And I’ve been so inspired by all of the variations there! Dresses, two-toned, petal front, embroidered, lace, pleated! My neckline treatment was inspired by a version posted, there. It’s a teeny roll neck applied with Jen’s flat binding method.

And it is perfect! Lol

I left it un-hemmed because this fabric distorts like a sonofabitch. It behaved everywhere except the sleeve hems which I took in a bit after the fact. I ran a line of basting stitches about 1/2 from the hemline to (hopefully) discourage any unraveling, there. I cut this version using the same modified pattern I created for the Sunshine-y Scout tunic. This fabric was so wide, I might have enough for another cropped version, too!

Will I ever get tired of making Scouts?? The sewcialist world wants to know!

  1. I just cut a knit scout with striped fabric from Mood, inspired by your sewalong and Jen’s knit scouts! Sorry I’m too late for the sewalong. Now you have to make the blue Pavot and we can show up to sewcialist events totally twinned out.

    • You actually have until July 8th to upload a project!! And we will be twins sooner than you think! I bought some black and white RPL at Mood thanks to you! I made a Cake patterns Hummingbird with it ;o)
