I finished this top at the beginning of February, but it was too cold to wear it until like last week. The pattern is available online for free. This top was easy and worked up very quickly. The stitch pattern was fun to crochet. This is the first warm weather top I have knitted/crocheted and I am excited to have a knitted/crocheted garment to wear when it's not negative 30 degrees.
I used Knit Picks Comfy worsted weight yarn in Rosehip. The pattern calls for 100% acrylic yarn, but I decided to use a cotton/acrylic blend instead of 100% acrylic since this is a warm weather top and acrylic yarn would be too warm.
Total Cost: $14.95
I made some modifications to the pattern. The pattern was for a 40" bust, but that just seemed excessively large. My gauge was a little small so I followed the directions for the 40" bust and ended up with a 36" bust. You can check out my Ravelry Project Page here.
So in the near future there will be posts about the two fashion show garments and the competition I entered (I won Most Wearable, by the way!).
