Crochet Top Reveal!!

Morning to you all, thank you for taking the trouble to drop by!

 I am really excited by this post , do you remember by green top I was making?

Well the pattern worked like a dream, the bamboo cotton was lovely and silky to work with (if a little splitty)
but for once I have crocheted something I actually might wear!!


The pattern was from King Cole Ltd made in Bamboo Cotton (50% cotton, 50% Bamboo) and took 4 x 100g balls.  The pattern was easy to follow and the shaping minimal. All in all a very good pattern.

Ta Dah!!

Oh dear, I suppose you would like to see me in it ............... I hate having my piccie taken!  Here goes...........


Ok ... one with my head in!

Hope you like it! 

Speak soon xx


  1. It's lovely! Well done you!


  2. Wow it's gorgeous - and so are you !!! It looks lovely on you and the colour is terrific for summer.
    I think you'll get lots of wear out of it providing it washes well.
    I'd make a few more in different colours if I were you.

  3. Wow, it's lovely. I adore the colour. Well done.

  4. Wow, it looks awesome! And it looks great on you - much better than on the hanger! :-) Well done on finishing such a great project and thanks so much for sharing.
