I really enjoy my finished knit or crochet items, but the larger they are, the longer it takes me, the less likely I’m going to complete the project within a reasonable amount of time. Point in case, this simple construction of this Fitted Top. I don’t know what I was thinking. Well, I did know that I wasn’t slim like the model, nor young like her, so I made a few modifications. Well,
basically, I used the published stitch and most of the sizing, otherwise, I made it my own. I figured it would be wiser to change the neckline altogether by bringing up the decolletage, lengthening the whole top and making the straps thinner and thereby, more appropriate as a summer tank top. I used HiKoo’s CoBaSi yarn in Indigo and Natural Olive that I purchase at Got Your Goat because of the wonderful mix of cotton, bamboo, silk and elastic nylon, perfect for hot temperatures. And it took me months to finish this. I am happy with the results, though, and intend to wear the heck out of it.
