|Close up of original shirt from A Flight of Fancy|
The only problem I have at this moment is that my pattern is coming out slightly smaller than the original (6 cm on the the original and I will be lucky to hit 4.5 on mine). I suspect I have based my pattern on a smaller stitch length, so I might be able to enlarge it by working over 3 or 4 threads as a basic unit rather than 2. I am not 100% sure I care about this, once I have a better idea of how the proportions of the whole thing will work on my body I can make up my mind. Now that I have a chart to work from and some idea of how much space each row of pattern covers, enlarging it should not be too difficult.
