Pattern: Sheer Panel Top from Vogue Knitting, Summer 2013 issue.
Yarns: Coral - Super 10 Cotton. Green - Americo Cotton Flamme. Yellow - Cotton Tweed.
It took a ball and a bit of the Super 10, all but a small amount of the ball of Cotton Tweed and about a third of a ball of the Cotton Flamme. The Super 10 and the Cotton Flamme were scores at last fall's Knitters Fair. I purchased them for $4 each. The Cotton Tweed had been a gift. No bank accounts were damaged in the knitting of this top.
Mods: #1. At the armholes, I continued to make decreases beyond where the pattern suggested stopping to knit straight. The idea was to better fit my 14 inch shoulder width. But - I neglected to account for the rolling under of the un-trimmed armholes, so now I have a bit of a racer style top. I like it still.
#2. I wouldn't guarantee that the colour changes were worked precisely where the designer intended.
I knit this top a bit longer than my normal length, as it has a bit of an A line and is meant to drape and swing a bit. The Super 10, though, seems a bit stiff for the 'swing'. At least, in this new state, it is stiff. Hopefuly it will get more drape with wear.
As always, the proof is in the wearing. I have worn it twice now.
