    What a great looking top! Thank you for sharing it with us.

    Very pretty top! Beautiful color yarn too!

    Which parts of the shirt are knitted in the round?

  4. Christine July 6, 2008 at 10:19 am #

    As a GW alumnus, I say great minds come from there! LOL I love your design! I wish I had found this 2 weeks ago! I had been looking & looking for a beautiful cami to make for my step daughter. I never knew it would be so difficult. I settled on a basic pattern & used a varigated yarn and it’s turniung out ok, but I will need to make this one next! Thank you so much for sharing your design! I will post it on Ravelry when I finish it in the next month or so, I will let you know when I do. I’m new there & just getting to know my way around.

    The top part only is knitted in the round. All of it could easily be translated to being either worked in pieces or in the round. If you’d like help just let me know.
    I’m glad you all like my top. Hopefully I will get pictures of it on a model soon so that you can see the fit.

    Lovely pattern. It’s just what I have been looking for to make for my daughter. What size does the pattern make? She is a sm/med at most clothing stores. Thank you so much for sharing your talent.

  7. tricia April 14, 2009 at 1:22 pm #

    I like the color you used. What color did you use?

  8. danadoodle April 14, 2009 at 3:21 pm #

    The color I used was KnitPicks CotLin Lantana (it’s much darker than on their site).
    The size this makes is a small/medium. (Bra size of about 34 B or so).
    Please let me know if you need help. Email me at danamberman@gmail.com
    Thank you

    This is soooo cute! How can I adjust the pattern for a larger size?

  10. tricia May 5, 2009 at 12:39 pm #

    what does dpns mean?

  11. Wandalea Walker June 13, 2009 at 3:12 am #

    I’m planning to make this–it’s beautiful, great details! How about you as a model? We’d love to see it on. Thanks for sharing.

  12. Christine September 9, 2009 at 10:46 pm #

    Thanks for adding the new photos! They’re beautiful, and so is the top.

    This is a very cool pattern, although I think it may turn out a little long on me with my short torso. I’m hoping to finish mine before winter gets here; looking forward to wearing it :)
