I have made this top in black dk stylecraft naturals bamboo and cotton.
I changed the rib section to garter rib and increased the length to kind of crotch height, top of thigh.
Made a stupid mistake, knitted the back, wrote down 56 rows of rib instead of 65, knitted the front, now I have a back longer than the front.
First I thought I’ll leave a little slit unseamed each side and leave the back longer, some tops are designed that way. This isn’t going to work. As the top is fitted an unseamed side just makes the 2 bottom edges flap around in a very unflattering square looking way. I think those slit seam tops are a looser fit design.
Looking for ideas.
I can cut off the extra 9 rows and bind off making it all shorter. I would prefer the longer length of the back all round but the front length is wearable if this is my only solution.
But what else?
Add a band of lace all around? But would that be stretchy enough for the bottom edge? Is there a lace which would look right with this top?
Change yarn and colour and bind off in a different colour? Do a more decorative bind off? What would look good and be stretchy after garter rib?
I’m just thinking if I have to do all this extra work to cut off, change length and bind off, I might as well add a bit of something different while I’m at it.
My preference would be a solution which adds 9 to 11 rows to the short front but without looking crazy and either leave the back in garter rib or cut it and knit the additional length as with the front.
