A Vogue Knitting success

I just finished this "Drape Neck Top" from last year's Vogue Knitting.



The gap in the front lower edging is intended. I thought it looked odd, but decided to knit the top as designed. It's growing on me.

Here's a closeup of the drape neck treatment the magazine named the design for, and the ribbon-lace effect that splits at the "v" and travels up to the shoulders.

I had to take a few shots to try to capture the drape of the fabric and design. The blue color is closer to those I took in the sunlight with heavy shadows.



I started this project in December, as a break after a solid month working on that large throw - after two sets of the lace on the throw, I allowed myself a few rows on this one. The back was completed by the time I finally got the throw done.




The yarn is 100% cotton - I think this will be very comfortable and cool to wear when the weather warms up.


With our early spring, those hot days of summer seem like they are very near.
