Soleil in pure cotton

My first garment for 2009 will be Soleil from Knitty Spring 05.

I’m making the smallest size ( 33″-35″ bust) but I will need to add bust darts. This is the first top I have made with added bust shaping so no idea how it will work out. I’ll let you know when I have done it.

The yarn is Bendigo 8ply cotton and I am finding it really nice to work with. Knitted up it is softer than I expected.

Hopefully I won’t have to frog it to many times to get a good fit!
