Yarn: Schachenmayr nomotta Catania
Pattern: Modische Maschen 06/1991 Vichy Top
Needles: Lower part knit with the Bond using No.1 plate.
3.25 and 3.5 Crochet Hook

This is a quick project thanks to the Bond! My mom knitted the front and I did the back on the Bond USM.

I have shortened the length and started with 70 stitches cast on instead of 100 like the pattern said. Did 80 stitches in the back so it would not end up too tight
The bust panels are hand crochet and it took me about 8 hours to finish them, while we were driving to Busch Gardens, Tampa and back just before New Years.

The lower crochet part is done after the front and back have been sewn together, using a 3.5 crochet hook.

These little Lories from Butterfly World loved the crochet top!

How cute! And what a nice way to have a collaborative project, too.

10x!
The pattern is from an old East Germany magazine from 1991, buried among tons of bulky ugly sweaters Smiley

Love those Lorikeets too! Ooooh such darlings, very friendly, though they will bite if you do not let them mind their business, like one did when I would not let him chew the picots on the top Smiley
It is warm here in the Sunshine state!
