I wanted to knit a tube-top, but I couldn't find any patterns on the web or in any books, so I got out my trusty #9 circulars and whipped this baby up. 





I used Lion Brand Jiffy yarn in White. It's soo snuggly, and really does look like Mohair! The tubetop fits pretty well, except for being a bit snug on the top, but I'm guessing it'll stretch after a couple of wears.

I love it and it looks so fantastic on you!.  From the picture, the cables look like hearts...which makes it even more beautiful.  I've never used Jiffy yarn, but I'm going to have to try it.

Edit: How long were your circulars?

I love it! It looks fantastic! That's awesome that you just went off on your own and created something... I wish I could be so crafty! I also wish I could get away with wearing tube tops, because man, I so want to make this for myself!! Great job!

That looks excellent!  I was thinking of making a cabled tube top too.  I made a spaghetti strap top once, but I too found that the top edge was a little tight.  I think that my cast off is tighter than my cast on.
