I just finished this Drops top. It was intended for me, but it fits DD better, so she gets it.
Yarn: Madil Eden in Lipstick Red (100% bamboo)
Pattern: Drops 101-23
Pattern changes: I don’t want open stitches on the bodice of this, so I used [I]July 23-Mock Cable Right[/I] from the [I]365 Knitting Stitches a Year[/I] book for the bodice. I also used stockinette instead of reverse stockinette for the top. I did some decreases around the waist and changed to a smaller needle size (6) for the cable rib part until the bustline. Then I went back to a size 7 needle. I reverted to the size 6 needle for the neck and sleeve edges.
This yarn is VERY drapey–perfect for this pattern.
Cute, huh? It’s extremely soft, drapes beautifully and fits her like a cute top should!
I LOVE this top so much, I’m making another one for me, but without the decreases and in a different color.
