Son, Musician ( Guitar Savant, really) wanted some European Cut, fitted shirts for when he plays out.   He’s so thin he couldn’t find anything commercially that fit.  SO he picked out the fabric and I made him what he wanted.  Happy camper!

Finished knitting and blocked.  BUT… I think I’m going to turn it into a shrug.Shawl dimensions are approx 18” x 60” after blocking, but I then sewed up an”underarm seam” from bottom edge up 18” to form a “sleeve” on each end to wear as a shrug.  I will post a pic after I find a model to photograph it on.  Thanks.
