I love how simple, yet stylish this top looks. Working two yarns together allows for so many different colour combinations. I want to make up several of them. I think it would look good with either side facing out. If you are careful with your seams you could easily make this top reversible.

I can't get to the pattern, from here or from Ravelry.

delightful little sweater - ideal for summer or in fall or spring with a jacket - and I have the yarn sitting here waiting for it -- for once I am ahead of the project ) and I too like the instructions for the finished hem - may be able to use it again in another project for a more finished look

This is a sweet little sweater that will work nicely under a suit jacket or on its own with a pair of slacks or jeans. The pattern is nicely detailed and provides photo instructions for making a beautifully finished turned him instead the usual cast on/bind off methods. This top could be a classic in anyone's wardrobe.

I was excited to see another pattern for my 12 3/4 mm needles, but alas the pattern actually calls for 3 different lengths of size 4 mm needles.
