Sleeveless Tunic Top by bergere de france
My Ravelry Post: here
Yarn: Rowan Classic Cash Cotton – sea foam, 5 balls (though i bought 6, and without the adjustments – see notes – it would have needed all 6.)
Notes: The pattern calls for it to be knit in as a front and a back, so I converted it to knit in the round, and lopped a good 2 inches off the length, since otherwise it would have been closer to a dress, which i wasn’t sure was going to work since I’m 5’6″ and naturally pear shaped.
The yarn is incredible. Seriously. I don’t like knitting with cotton, but this stuff is special and has a lovely colour range. (That said, right now it’s liable to pill, though i’m hoping it’ll settle down after a while.) It’s certainly very soft, and smooshy, for a cotton.
It’ll be interesting to see how this looks after the baby is born. I’m hoping it won’t be too loose the flappy as a top. (That said, i think there is room to grow in the body of the top, so i’m hoping it’ll get lots of use for the next 4 months at least.
