that is such a cute top! I will post the image because now lionbrand makes you log in to see the patterns, this way everyone can see it easily.
I will have to look through my stash and see of I have any yarn that would be a good substitute for cotton-ease!

That looks very cute, but I think the bottom of the shirt is WAY too large. I wonder if I can figure out how to decrease the botom part so it is slightly more fitted?

PS. Is there a cheaper alternative to cotton ease?

I am going to use peaches n creme too, in the peppercorn ombre. I have a 1 lb cone that I bought on sale awhile ago.

i went to michaels today and i bought 12oz of sugar n' cream in lavender ice which i hope would be enough for this project. i wasn't sure with the color at first. i was going to go for just one solid color but now that i did one of the triangles, i'm happy i went with the lavender ice instead  Smiley although i think i should've used a smaller hook so there wouldn't be any visible holes at all and it would be smaller (i was using a g hook). i'm pretty small and skinny so even the small looks big on me but i guess the greater the coverage, the better.  Cheesy


i only worked on one triangle to test the yarn out. and because this is my first crochetalong so im pretty excited. i'll do the rest tomorrow Smiley goodnight!

I started this last night but I think I will have to rip it and do it again with a smaller hook. I really don't want to line it!

I think I might try this, I've been trying to get into crochet but this is the first pattern I've really fallen for.  I'm going to use peaches and cream, and are y'all using the G hook called for or a smaller one?  And would that be just for the cups or for the whole thing?  I'm debating because I'm right between 2 sizes, so maybe go down a hook size but use the bigger pattern?

Too many questions.  Sorry.   Embarrassed

Aedara, I am going to do the cups using an F hook and then go back to the G for the rest of the body.
