Another Basketball Jersey!

Another day, another basketball jersey! My oldest participated in a library reading program a couple months ago that sent him to see the Milwaukee Bucks for free. His first NBA game! He was SO ridiculously over the moon, but he didn’t have any Bucks gear. I couldn’t let this happen, so I whipped up another DIY Basketball Jersey for him to wear!

This one was a little easier, since it’s made of knit. I didn’t have to modify the neck at all, and I didn’t add a side panel.

I took the shoulders in a little bit more than the one I made of mesh. And since the original pattern has the yoke and sleeves all in one piece, I rounded out the armscye to make an actual hole for the arm to go through.DSC_6467 copy

This pattern goes up to a size 8, which was perfect for my skinny man, with a couple inches added for length.

It’s super easy to add heat transfer vinyl (affiliate link) to knit, so I asked him the number of his favorite player and used the number templates that come with the pattern. Just don’t ask me who the player is… I have no idea!

Two jerseys down… probably at least 30 more to go in my lifetime! ;)
