I finished this top a couple of weeks ago, but have still not posted about it yet. Sweetie has been having a neck pain so he couldn't take photo for me. It had been put it away until this morning...
This morning was such a beautiful one, with sunshine and some light winds, and Sweetie is getting better. He helped to take some pictures of me wearing it... It looks quite nice and I'm pretty much pleased with it!
I found the pattern, Girly Top on Ravelry when I was looking for a top to knit. It's so simple and very easy to knit. Love this pattern, it's knitted in the round, from bottom up, all just in one piece! I think it's perfect for any beginners! Here is how it looks when lying flat:
Using Patons Brilliant yarn for this top, I followed the pattern for size S but used larger needles (4.0mm for ribbing and 4.5mm for the rest). I liked everything about this top pattern, but millions
of stockinette stitches just took me FOREVER to finish! Finally done (phew!). So happy it fits me well!
It's so hard to take a good photo of the top with this yarn, a metallic yarn for a sparkle look. One thing I liked best about the yarn is it's smooth and easily fits, I almost didn't block though, just did some light sprays and let it dry naturally. I pretty like the yoke...
... and another look from the back - actually it's the same for both sides :).
I'm wearing it tomorrow, hope my colleagues like it. They saw me knitting it during a company trip! :)
Thank you so much for popping in. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
Take care and see you!
