Slinky is a pain!

KS 2565: I cut the french dart version out of the blue slinky. I've worked with it before, but what a big hassle. Slippery and super stretchy, so you have to be very, very careful when you are laying it out. Everything has to be supported. My slinky has ribs on it; I don't know if that's typical of slinky knit. The ribs to make it easier to cut on grain, assuming it doesn't slip. I use pattern weights and a rotary cutter, and I rough cut around the pattern first.

It should be a very comfortable top, tho.
