With a grumpy look, to boot (grrrr, school).

Tivoli tee
Pattern: by Grumperina, with mods
Yarn: Lion Brand Cotton-Ease, Strawberry Cream, 2 and a bit skeins
Needles: Denise US7
Started: June 1, 2005
Finished: June 21, 2005

After knitting the entire top as written, it was way too big. So, I ripped all the way back to the yoke and knit the body again, with some changes – ended up being about a 35″ bust, after washing, for my 36″ bust:

– I did a total of 11 yoke increases
– on the last yoke round before the armhole bindoffs, I purled across the sleeve stitches to combat curling
– I cast on 16 stitches for the underarm
– I did the shaping at the sides
– I purled 1 row before casting off the bottom knitwise.

Comfy and definitely wearable! Thanks for the inspiration Grumps!

    Hey, looks great! I’m glad you were able to fix it up in a way that’s pleasing to you :) :). May I include it in the Tivoli gallery? Let me know!

    i LOVE that color of cotton ease, it’s my fave out of the many many balls I’ve bought in the last week ;)

    I’m uber obsessed with cotton ease too..I even bought that same cavern seconds and am loving it!

    I think I even have that merino silk sitting around too! (bought from some ebay person) yum!
