I finished this up last night. I don't have any action pics because I made it for my sister, who lives in DC. I have to send it to her and hopefully she'll take a couple of pics of it on her. We'll see.
Anyway, here are the deets:
Pattern: free from IK
Supplies: Debbie Bliss Cathay in colorway 09, circs in sizes 6 and 5, ribbon and beads
Here are a couple of blocking pics; the tunic was still slightly wet when these were taken:

I didn't make any mods to this pattern, except that I worked the front one side at a time rather than joining a new ball of yarn. I like this top so much I think I'll make one for me.

It looks so lovely! I love the color and the yarn has a great sheen to it. I'm hoping to finish mine this weekend...but things always come up, lol. But my fingers are crossed!

I just started working on this, and I'm hoping to have it done in time to wear it in late August/early Sept.

I'm using Tahki Cotton Classic in a really pretty teal color.

I hope that the ribbing tightens up enough.  I might go down an extra needle size just to be sure.

wow, too funny....i started this pattern at the end of june, little did i know there was a kal for it!  i've made it up to the front/back split sections now.  i accidently made the ribbing section a 1/2" longer, but i think i'll like the tunic in a slightly longer length than the original, so i added an extra 1/2" to the torso portion, as well.  still undecided about the ribbon choices, maybe even a crocheted chain w/ some silky yarn....i'm not sure yet.

i ended up using an acrylic yarn thats super soft in a khaki green color, sirdar snuggly dk:

Hey guys. I just got a knitting help book and was wanting to try this pattern. I can knit and purl and was wondering if this is a good pattern for my first round project?
Would you think it's easy enough for that? I made a dishcloth with and aliens face on it so I can also follow a pattern. I'd love to hear opinions.

I think this would be a great first "in the round" project. You have plenty of help here if you get stuck!
