Eva’s Ruffled Top – Complete!

2 Comments

I am finally done ruffling.  🙂  I love the finished top.  It is soooo cute!

It fits Eva pretty well right now.  It’s just a tad big.  As long as she doesn’t have a huge growth spurt, it should fit for the fall/winter, which is when it’ll be most useful.  I thought it would work for summer, but it’s kind of heavy.

After a wet blocking, my gauge measured at 17 sts x 18 rows = 2 inches in st st in the round.  The top itself measured 15.25 inches from the neckline to the hem, and 19 inches around the chest.

RUFFLES!

I followed the pattern exactly except for knitting four ruffles per sleeve instead of five.  I used way less yarn than called for in the pattern.  I managed to knit the whole thing with less than 3 skeins of Knit Picks Comfy Sport in “Peony.”  The pattern called for 4 balls.  Of course I knit two less ruffles, but I think I could have finished them with the leftovers from the 3rd ball of yarn.  Your mileage may vary, though.

Extra details can be found on my Rav page.

  1. Since you used a lot less yarn than the pattern said, will you have enough to make a smaller version for Kirsi?
