Cropped Top Pattern!

So it's finally been released! This is my cropped knit and crochet top with long sleeves and I love it! You will too once you get your hands on it. Just in time for Spring, this top can be worn fancy or dressed down. It all depends on what look you'd like to exude. This piece is fun and, dare I say, practical!

What's your favorite color? Cause you can make this top in that color and be the envy of all your non-knitting and non-crocheting friends. They won't find this in the stores! But, beware, you may be asked to make it more than once.

For the yarn techies in my audience, here are the stats:

Finished: February 14, 2009
Pattern: My own, found here
Yarn: BAM BOO 100% Bamboo yarn (Classic Elite Yarns, 9 balls

This pattern is available at my Etsy Shop and will also be available at Ravelry, as soon as I get the chance to list it there! I'm always available to help with any questions you may have with any of my patterns, so do not hesitate to email me.

Enjoy the pattern!

I love bamboo yarn! A bit difficult to work with where the splitting is concerned, but really worth it in the end. :-)

So pretty. And the color is fantastic on you. I agree about the bamboo yarn like Zu said it is hard to work with you need to pay close attention to what you are doing. But it is so soft and pretty it is worth it.

Yes, I have to agree with you ladies, bamboo yarn is a bear to work with, but once you get the hang of it, the final product is beautiful! The drape is phenominal and it's so soft of your skin. I kept this "sample" for myself and I'm so happy I did. It's going to get a lot of wear this Spring and Summer cause it's just so versitile! Thanks for the comments!
