I made this tube quite some times ago and I havent joined craftster that time. Sam saw this tube and want me to knit her one, so I did. I used the same yarn, which is one of my favourite yarn, the patons classic merino wool in natural marl. I think I only used like 1 and 1/2 balls of yarn.

This tube is knitted in round, using different needle size to give the shaping effects. Very easy and fast knit. I combine a simple lace and cable pattern, also rib pattern in it. I attach a maroon ribbon as a final touch to it and actually you can wear this top upside down. Grin
Thanks for looking!

I jsut love to knit, but most knitted stuff are just... so boring. I haven't been able to find any interesting patterns at all, but this one I'd really love to knit!!!
do you still have the pattern? Is there any possibilty I could have it?
Me is sooo in love with this. and with the ribbon and everything. Simply adorable!

wow I love it! the colour, the ribbon...everything!!!!

If you don't mind me asking... what was the variation in size of the needles that you used for the shaping? I think that is an ingenious idea!
