Tenth crochet project: Green top

Green top
Originally uploaded by ceecrochet.

This is the top mentioned in my last post about ongoing projects. It went on holiday with me, and the heatwave made it a priority project, so it got finished surprisingly quickly. It’s still a little tight, but I suspect the cotton will stretch a little.

The pattern is, as always, from this book. The only changes I made were a yarn substitution, which resulted in a slightly tighter fit, and one row of ch spaces to accomodate a ribbon on the front half.

I had an embarrasingly hard time keeping track of the increases and decreases on the first (back) half, which meant a few rounds of frogging, but things improved when I started keeping notes (to the surprise of no one).

Hook: 4mm

Yarn: Toptex Simplicity in # 3140.
