Crochet Pink Thang is DONE and GOOD!

I finished my crochet top.. My very first crochet top at that! Ive crocheted blankets before but never something to be worn. WOO HOO! I like the way it turned out too! I may have had trouble with the top section taking four days to figure out something that then only took two to complete (would have been one day but I didnt have enough time to sit and do it all!)

Going to have to get a black tank and a black long sleeved top to go under it for summer/winter I just dont think a black top with short sleeves goes very well. Im really happy with how this turned out and I will have a go at other crochet patterns now and not be scared of them. Becauses well, I CAN DO IT! Sorry Im really impressed with myself.
Forest Flower Pullover by Kirstin Omdahl its the cover design of Interweave Crochet Spring 2009
It was Bernat Satin in pink that my mother sent me back in the winter that I used. 4mm and 4.5mm crochet hook. 4mm for the body and joining yolk to the body and a 4.5mm for the motifs.
Once I understood what I was doing I found it straight forward and easy to do. But sometimes I need to walk away and come back to understand.
Started April 24th and finished May 20th.

I also got a load of yarn from www.kempswoolshop.com was delivered to me the very next day 2 balls of sock yarn and enough for 3 projects. Ive already casted on and have started one! :) I will write up about all of that in another post but for now I just had to show off my newly crochet top!

Fabaroony, lovely colour!
You could sew in contrasting fabric behind the top bit then you could wear it as a vest top rather than with a t-shirt underneath, just a thought :-)

I think it looks good with a short-sleeved shirt. Great job!
