    I was planning to make the field trip top for my daughter with a border print knit for the body. When went to lay it out, I realized that the border runs parallel to the selvedge. It’s a lightweight knit but there’s definitely more stretch crosswise than lengthwise. Am I asking for trouble if I cut it out across the grain?

    What can happen is you may end up with a too tight garment.

    Maybe if you size up? Especially with the sleeves.

    Sorry not to be more help.
