Blue Heron Rayon Metallic top

Hello Everybody,

I posted a few months ago asking, essentially, how to purl (thanks your your help, btw). Now I have made this and am really happy with it. The picture is clickable. Never mind my twisted up mouth; I was eating a potato chip at the time. :slight_smile:

And I love the yarn. This was made from just one skein of it. It’s really pretty and pleasant to work with.

What a great looking top! Love the colors!

That’s reallly beautiful. Nice yarn, perfect even stitches, beautiful model… I think you’ve got it covered!

Congratulations!

Gorgeous!! Love the color and it fits you wonderfully!

I love it! Where can I find that pattern? :heart: :heart:

Very pretty! My DD would love it, so I better hide the pic from her! LOL

And you just learned to purl? I’m impressed.

Thanks everybody! :smiley:

Oh, right, the pattern! I used this pattern

But I had to modify a lot because I used a different yarn. So I went down a needle size, decreased the number of stitches (I don’t know if I decreased improperly or if it’s just the pattern, but I needed to end with K2 or row 3 of the lace pattern), and also because I wanted a less bulky look I started the neckline sooner and narrowed the straps a bit. But it’s essentially that pattern.

Well done. Very impressive.

:thumbsup:

:smiley: Looks great on you…excellent job :thumbsup:

:inlove: Great work, and so cool that you modified it to your own taste. Looks great on you. (Totally digging the hair do too)

:thumbsup:

That is gorgeous and looks perfect on you, too. But then again, with a figure like that, I’m sure most things do. :wink:

Wow! It look fabulous on you. I’m impressed with your pattern modifications too – I like yours better than the original!

That tank looks great on you!

That is beautiful! It looks great on you! :thumbsup:
