Description

Knit as part of a knit along on Flickr and Ravelry.
I decided to wing it and payed for it dearly ;0)

I thought I was very clever when coming up with the shape of the top.

Well, I’m not feeling so clever now, as I realize it doesn’t look so hot with the shirt I intended to wear it with.

It looks…OK with this one, I guess.

It features i-cord edging, I did this totally wrong the first time and had to frog it.
In fact, I had to frog quite a few times.
I could have made an entire sweater with all the knitting on this thing.

I knit it with the hope that it would be reversible, I think it looks OK on reverse stockinette side.
I was careful to change skeins on the sides only and to weave in my ends as neatly as possible. I’m not sure I’ll wear it on that side, though.

I didn’t bind off the top edges, I started to i-cord straps and knit 2 tog with one of the live stitches. I really like the look of it, but probably could have used larger needles.

Overall, I’m pleased with it. Though, it’s not exactly as I envisioned it.

Yarn: Crystal Palace Yarns Crème, about 3 skeins, likely less
Needles: Size 7’s for body, size 5’s for i-cord straps and top edge.
