it doesn't look like you have too much left to go, right? just sleeves and neckline? i'm sure one will do.

i'm nearing the end of ms. marigold (hurrah!), and had a quick question about the armholes and ruffle.

in the directions, it says to finish the armholes by crocheting two rounds. after that, it says to pick up stitches for the ruffle where the shoulder stitches were bound off.

where i'm getting confused is that, based on how i'm reading it, it sounds like i'm supposed to build my ruffle on the bound-off stitches at the shoulder, but how can i do that if i've already crocheted two rounds around the entire armhole.

sorry if the question is sort of dumb or if i'm missing something obvious. Smiley

I am about 40% complete.  I am using some STASH BUSTING Cotton Ease in Pistachio.  I did not do a swatch and am knitting the size for 36".  Wish me luck on the results...

BTW, what a clever pattern.  I've never knit anything in this manner.  Pretty cool!

I have this pattern and it is in my list of next to knit! I hope to get somethings completed soon so I can get started on it. I am thinking I am going to use KnitPicks Shine for mine. For one it is in the stash so I don't have to buy any yarn! Great news for the wallet and great news for the stash!!!! Also I get really hot really fast so I didn't want to use anything that would add any heat to my body. I know that wool breaths but everything that I have knit with wool in it is very hard for me to wear too hot!

I had ordered the Elegance for this pattern, but after seeing so many people run short with the suggested yarn, I decided to use the Elegance for something else.  I'm glad I did.  When I cast on for Marigold.  I will definitely use a cotton blend of some type.  In my opinion this pattern is too summery for wool!

I'm using the Elegance yarn, and it doesn't seem like it will be too heavy.  The yarn is pretty lightweight.

i was thinking it sounded kinda warm for a tank top too, what weight is Elegance?  I wonder what a good cotton would be
