Cowl Neck Tank

This top was fun to make, but the scarf was so long so I have it three times around my neck..
I love the colourful fabric, but it is ribbed knit so it was not the best for this top. Anyway when I cut it to shape at the waist I liked it better.
The skirt is from an earlier project which I like very much :)

Material Notes

Ribbed knit and jersey.

    The waist modification made the top elegant and flatters the pattern! Your variant looks much neater than in the magazine. As you are wearing the top, you know better if the fabric not right but I see nothing wrong with it. The idea to make the scarf in mono colour changed the idea of the whole item. So I am very glad I shouldn’t think much on modifications if I ever decide to make this outfit, thank you very much:-))

    Your top looks awesome on you; such neat colours! I like how you contrasted with the black. I am thinking this top might work without the scarf as well??

      Thanks Rita! I’m sure it will work great without the scarf, but that makes it special :-)

    Ha ha, Ellen! I tested my scarf length before I stuck a needle in it!!! :) Then again, I am tiny so would do, wouldn’t I? I like what you’ve done with the contrasting fabric; very nice indeed.
