I'm finishing up on the second strap and then will go back to working the length of the top. I only had one skein of Classic Elite Yarn's Provence in 56625 (Egyptian Cotton). It's a discontinued color that I bought at Kathy's Kreations in Ligonier a few years ago. I have two skeins of similar colors but not close enough to have worked in for this top. Instead, I'll make each girl a top using the other two skeins.
The pattern calls for size 7 U.S. circular needles in a length I did not have so I used straight needles plus a 16 inch circular needle just for the straps. Downside to not having the correct needles means I will have to seam the back of the top.
The photo was taken with my cell phone. The color is off. It's a raspberry color but not as purple as it looks in the photo.
I have just a little bit to go and then I can seam up the back, wash and block and get her to try it on. I'm pleased with how it looks.
And, now finished.
