That is one REALLY pretty top!  I love it!  The trim goes great with the yarn colour you chose.  Did you get a chance to wear it yet?

how did you do the ring in the middle?

The ring in the middle is just a white plastic "drapery ring" (you can find it at Michael's in the sewing section) and I just crocheted around it... pretty easy once you get the hang of it.

I love how you used the ring for the middle. It looks great on you! Is the cotton twist pretty comfy?

Sorry I am just getting around to answering everyone now... don't know how I missed all these posts!

Anyway, the cotton twist is not bad... it feels nice against the skin, but I wish it had a bit more stretch.  Maybe there are other stitches to use to get more stretchy fabric.  I'd like to try Classic Elite's Fixation yarn, though.

could you please post a detailed tutorial? ive gotten myself some monaco mercerized cotton thread, and id really like to work on a pattern that starts out with a square, like yours. 

i guess my main problems are: how do u estimate the size of the cups? how to u attach the strings? and most importantly, i know this pattern starts with a square that u keep building on, but when u first "build" on your square, how to u crochet on that side of the square that is the side-edge of all your single crochets? like...there seems to be no "holes" in which u stick ur needle into...unless u jsut stick it randomly around the egde...is this so? thanks so much in advance!
