Daisy SC - Cowl finished!

I finished the cowl neckline last night and this is how it looks! Not bad, huh? Especially if you consider that I knitted it with my weird circular needle...

I have to admit that I am impressed!

I like the way my SC fits me (not too tight but not too loose) but I think this top is meant to be worn tight to look at its best...

If I had to make another one, I will probably make it the smallest size (34) although my bust measurement is 37"... Just a thought...

Now, this is a photo from the front as I know some of you wonder how it looks from that angle...

Not bad either, I think!

I only wish it was a little less loose around the armholes but I guess it wouldn't look that way with a thighter fit top... I only need to keep my arms on my hips! LOL

I still have to block that sweater though...

OK, back to my needles now! I need to finish that body!

Looks great! The second-time-around sleeves look much better than the first attempt. It only reinforces my decision to make my neckline higher, as my *ahem* ampleness is far to frightening to imagine in something that low!

oooh...now seeing this one, I'd totally like making that. I wasn't at all certain I liked the pattern at all. My mind has definitely been changed. What a wonderful job you did! It looks great on you.

I like it when it is a bit baggy under the arms...it adds to a retro feel, if you ask me!

Yeah, seeing so many people knit it at once is certainly a learning experience for me as a designer!

Thank you all for your kind words here!

Colleen - I wish I had bigger boobs to fill my SC better! I think the neckline the way it is would be just perfect for your bust size... It would actually be less deep on you... (I tried with socks in my bra! LOL)

Now, I just have to find a good plastic surgeon! ... and to convince Hubby! LOL

I have to admit I was a little septical about that pattern at first too, but I am really impressed by the way this top turns out!

Great pattern, Wendy! And thank you for following our steps and for the support you provide us!

I already think about making a more sexy SC! Smaller size and darker color... ;D

That does look great! I think the cowl looks SWEET! I think I would have to make the neckline a little higher as well thanks to my endowments....lol The twins, as some people call them, don't need any silicone that is for sure!

Can't wait to see this finished! Great job!

Wow, great fit!

what yarn is that? wow it really likes your body type :)

Do you mind my asking what bra size you wear? lol

I have a theory that has to do with how cute it looks.

I used BERNAT Baby Coordinates, color Yellow Daisy.

I have almost finished my sweater (I am about to rib the bottom now) and I haven't finished the second skein yet!

I love the texture of the fabric with that yarn, not mentionning the easy care of acrylic yarn.

I want to wear my SC ofen and I don't have much time for hand washing and flat drying!

My bra size is 95B but HUSH! LOL

Hey, you make great work here :)
I am from Istanbul(Turkey). In our culture there is a knitting technique called "Makrome". I don' t know what you call it. If you wonder I have videos in my blog abot Makrome.

My blog is e-craft.blogspot.com

Elifce, it is spelled "macrame" in the US. It was a very popular craft in the 60s and 70s. Mostly for hanging planters, but also some intrepid folks made whole garments out of it! The hippie culture embraced macrame. Thanks for the reminder.
