As I wanted to do something a little different I made this top longer (to a point just above the hip) on the one side and shorter (nearer to waist length) on the other.
It is knitted using a very fine cotton thread with a fancy yarn woven onto it. I used pattern number 45 in the Brother Stitch World three book which is the 1x1 that is usually used for Fair-Isle.

It's a very nice top Sue. I like the angled hem and you necklines and trims are always so beautifully knit.

Nice work. I really like the sleeve- did you put elastic in? Sharron

Thanks Sharron.....yes I did put some fine elastic (the sort that you knit in) into the hems of the sleeves.

Thank you all for your kind comments.
I have just realized that the white yarn in the photo is actually a two strand ball I wound off the cone. When I came to do the swatch I didn't use this as I wanted the top to be very light weight for the summer months so I went for one strand straight from the cone instead. I was surprised (seeing that the white looks more like a sewing thread) that it knit the way it did.
