Green top
Originally uploaded by ceecrochet.

This is the top mentioned in my last post about ongoing projects. It went on holiday with me, and the heatwave made it a priority project, so it got finished surprisingly quickly. It’s still a little tight, but I suspect the cotton will stretch a little.

The pattern is, as always, from this book. The only changes I made were a yarn substitution, which resulted in a slightly tighter fit, and one row of ch spaces to accomodate a ribbon on the front half.

I had an embarrasingly hard time keeping track of the increases and decreases on the first (back) half, which meant a few rounds of frogging, but things improved when I started keeping notes (to the surprise of no one).

Hook: 4mm

Yarn: Toptex Simplicity in # 3140.
