Here are a few pics of "Floss" I recently completed. It was a fun, quick project, the pattern was great and straight forward, and I loved the yarn (Polar), however, I definately would have used smaller needles had I realized how much Polar can change (for the bigger) when blocked. Gertie you warned me, I know...Smiley I think I may have to rig up some kind of drawstring around the top, as my boobs aren't holding it up much. Thanks for looking!

Can you rate the toughness of making it?  And did you use Rowan yarn?

Beautiful!!!  Just beautiful!

Supercool!  Is it in a Rowan magazine or on the site?  I wouldn't mind noseying at that pattern myself...  I'm such a copycat Wink

I love the effect that you have from whatever it is threaded vertically.  They are yum.

So pretty! So "chi-chi"! It doesn't look homemade at all, more like it came from some upscale boutique. Thanks for sharing!

Thank you so much for your kind comments  Smiley I'm glad you like it. I got the book/magazine from  the Knitting Garden http://www.theknittinggarden.com/ro-magbigbigger.htm , from Big just Got Bigger. I really love it, its really inspiring (not that I can afford to knit all those patterns with Rowan yarn,  Tongue) and the pictures are great.
In terms of difficulty I'd say its good for an advanced beginner. Its rated as "simple and straight forward" by Rowan, and other than some shaping its just straight 2x2 ribbing. I think you could do it, Boo  Wink
Thanks again for the great comments, its very encouraging.

Good lord, how could Rowan not be clamoring to use these photos in their pattern book, and on their website, and anywhere else they showcase this top? That's awesome Tere! You choose the coolest projects! Thanks for sharing... and keep sharing; you inspire the rest of us! (and give us great ideas...)
