Summer Top is finished!!!!!


I am so excited to share this with all of you! The summer top is finished & it turned out wearable!!! My daughter loves it!! She has already asked that I make another one, just longer, to make it a dress.  Here is the Ravelry link to the pattern Child's Sun Top. My daughter picked out the pattern, type of yarn, and of course the color.  The yarn was Peaches & Creme,Shades of Denim. I was a little surprised by her color choice because normally "blue is a yucky boy color".  She really likes the feel of Peaches & Creme. That might be because that is my favorite current yarn to knit with. lol   I had to made the back come up a little higher for her comfort and add a few more rows to the straps because they were to short to be able to tie. I think the pattern is awesome but some people will need to change the rows for the straps to match the child's body. No biggie really. I also had trouble with decrease the yoke on the back but was able to figure it out for the front. I did a little happy dance over that! Now I have learned how to sort of decrease & increase, cast on with just one needle & yarn, what should
how to do next? What would be the most useful to learn? I might have to look around on Raverly, some other blogs, and youtube to figure that out. As always, Happy Knitting!!
