Hey guys! I finally decided to pick up a project I started last year. Since I was pretty bigger last summer, I decided not to finish it, but this year, I'm feeling pretty good!! It's very easy actually, it's just two circles! I picked it up from a french magazine, I really don't remember what it's called... So, here go the photos!

First up the "I'm too cool to take a photo of myself" picture!



It's just a general one, so no comments here!

Next up, the side:



So IT IS just a circle!!! You can tell I'm trying to squeeze it all in, can't you?...

The back:



Please excuse everything that's wrong in this pic, my bra, the crazy strings coming all over my butt... Believe me, it was the "normal" one out of all the stock...

The front:



It deserves no comments....

And finally, the I-don't-have-to-worry-about-it-anymore/happy-dance photo!!




Please please comment you guys!! It's really important to tell me what you think!!

Thanks for looking!

even for an anti-knit/crochet person, I quite like this as a bathing suit cover up or maybe as a vest over a cami. i dont know why, maybe its the funness of the circles. Cheesy  nice work

That is so cool! I wish I was small enough to wear something like that. Love it!!

That is a great idea! I never thought of that!

Well, I really wanted to wear it today to go somewhere, so I wore it to go to work!! I put it like a vest, with a long shirt underneath. I like it much better this way, so you don't have to be small to wear it!!

Wow! I love it! That colour also suits you perfectly.
Would you mind sharing which magazine the pattern was from? I would love to have a top like this!

What a cool idea making a shirt out of circles like this. Now I have an idea of this in black haunting me, thank you very much! Smiley It looks great on you! I love the happy dance foto! And congrats on finishing a long-term project. Sometimes a project just needs some time off. It was certainly worth it.

Oh! Thank you very much for your comments!

kiewiet I really don't remember the name of the magazine, it was afrench one I found on the internet and downloaded it.... Embarrassed Embarrassed  I'll try to find it and I'll let you know. It only had a chart though, and it was pretty easy to figure out. You just start off with a normal circle, and then you start adding some holes!! When you decide it's long enough, you stop the circle where you want the sleeve to be, and you go back... Did that make any sense?Huh?

Heeeey Ruby!!! How are you?? You should really try it! I think I'm going to make one with some leftover lace fabric that I have.

I'm so glad you like it!

Any ideas on how to improve it? I was thinking of changing the cord, but I can't think of anything else!

nfirehazzard I'm afraid I can't write any pattern, since I found it on a magazine.... But I did write some general guidelines above, if you don't understand something tell me so and I'll try to write some more details! It's very easy though, all you need is patience!! When I got to the second circle, it was like I had ripped the first circle apart and done all over again!! I hated it!!!

kiewiet I'm so glad you got it!! If you decide you're going to make it, please post some photos! I'd love to see how it turns out!
