Finished!  I'm so pleased with how this top came out.  The finishing was such a pain - I'm really tired of picking up stitches now! 



Pattern: Josephone by Deborah Newton, Interweave Knits Summer 2007

Yarn: Karabella Vintage cotton, 5.5 balls

Needles: US 2 and 1 Addi Turbos

Notes: I removed one repeat of the pattern (1 rib setion + 1 lace section) in order to create a bust size of around 32.5 inches.  I also chose not to make the knitted cord.  I prefer the contrast of the ribbon, and I hate making cord!

Im very happy with this sweater.  Its delicate and light, and the fabric drapes beautifully.  The only modification Im still considering is to removed the bottom edging.  Its added on at the end, and I think it makes the body hang a bit too straight.  Im not sure though - I may keep it!  My sweater is an inch longer than the pattern calls for.  I chose to add a bit of length to the section after the lace before the armholes, because my lace section came out about an inch longer than specified.  Im happy with the length.  The modifications for size were easy, and I would encourage anyone wishing to make this size to give it a try - it really isnt too bad.

jesdmill that looks great!  I've been wanting to start this since I got the magazine with the pattern in it.  You've inspired me to get some yarn and get started!

I want to do my in the round too.  I hate seaming!  Anything special you had to do to get it lined up right?

Nope. I just casted on the amount for both sides, and used two stitch markers to mark the front and back that were different from my lace pattern markers. I am going to do the front and back separate like the pattern, but that won't be the hard seaming to do.

I'm done with the lace on the front, I was side tracked by a few other UFO's but I'm going to finish this by the end of the week.
