Last week I mentioned that I was reknitting a top using some Berroco Calico yarn. The colors are very difficult to capture but it is a riot of warm tones.
Using the Drops Sunny Day Top pattern, I decided to start on the front before I got to the armhole shaping for the back. I want to use as much yarn as possible and at this point, I can make the top a bit longer or shorter as needed.
The top has a two stitch garter edge that should make seaming a breeze as well as four rows of garter stitch at the bottom to keep it from rolling too much.
My markers indicate the decrease rows. Only eight stitches in all but it should give the top some shaping.
The charted back is relatively easy but I need to concentrate.
As you can see, I missed the correct placement of one of the yarn overs. It’s closer to the bottom than the top and I’m not going to fix it.
That’s right. It will be our secret. Shhh!
