When I was contemplating actually catching up to the group (which is on U anyway) and considered my "T" post. I thought maybe you can knit Tees as in tee shirts. I have a figure that would totally reject a knitted Tee and this must be why I never considered it before. So I went to my old friend RAVELRY to browse their millions of projects and sure enough there were amazing tees and people with good figures wearing them. Here is a small sample, I still can't label pictures so I will write them in the paragraph after the photos so you can link to them on Ravelry.
These are the titles to click for the pattern info: 1. TEE FOR TWO , 2. SLANT CABLED TOP , and 3. RIBBED LACED TRIMMED SHORT SLEEVE. Nos. 1 and 3 come in larger sizes, 2 does not. They all seem relatively easy to make.
LECTURE: If you knit or crochet regularly, you should be using RAVELRY. They do have you register, but it is free and there are so many things to see and learn and fun groups too.
