This is my first big crochet project in a long time. And it's also the first wearable that isn't a scarf/hat/socks/gloves. I'm proud of myself!
Especially because I made it in less than 24 hours total. And less than 12 hours actual work. The only thing I don't like about it is the color, I call it 80's orange. I got it for free, and it was the only thing on hand that I had in bulk, so I used it, but I'd rather have a used a dark red. Or a purple.
Anyway, Here it is.



These were the best pics I could get by myself of the whole thing.

If you don't like the color you might think about dyeing it.

I've thought about it. But I'm pretty much positive that it's acrylic. I got the yarn from my mom's boss' mom, and I unraveled it from a scarf or two and so I don't know any details about the yarn.
But seeing as I'm almost positive that it's acrylic, I don't think it'll do any good.

Wow!  That looks terrific on you.  I would love the pattern if you write one for my DD.  She would love that.  Great work!

Wow. I'm surprised at the response. I did this top kind of off the top of my head, but I'm making a similar one for a friend soon, so I'll try to take pics and set up a tut for it.

And thanks for the compliments on my tattoo. I love my dragon.

That's very true. Which is why I'm going to make a less revealing version for more every day wear. This is more along the lines of wearing over a bikini top at the beach in summer. And if I do a tute, it'll be aimed at building a unique top that's similar to this, so you can use your own stitch that's less revealing over the stomach.

It is revealing but it's very becoming, too.  You have the perfect body to pull it off! 

How did you just do this off the top of your head?!  Maybe I'll try something like this too, but cover up the back a bit more. 

Wait, how did you do the strap? Is it just a band of sc from one side to the next?  Huh  I love the halter style. Very cool!

Life isn't complete 'til you crochet a uterus for a friend.  Just make sure your fallopian tubes point down and not up! No one needs to lose an eye this way! Wink
