Ariadne bodice top in Colinette Lasso



Pattern: Ariadne from Colinette "Muse" pattern book
Yarn: Colinette Lasso, shade Jamboree
Yardage: Less than three skeins, although the pattern called for four
Needles: Brittany birch 4mm, Denise circular 4mm
Seams: fake grafting at shoulders, mattress stitch on sides

I'm quite glad to finish this at long last! The armhole ruffles took a lot less time than I had feared, after the interminable neckline. I sewed up the seams with the Lasso, in hindsight it may have been better to use a toning plain DK yarn. Lasso is very adept at catching up on itself. I'm not sure I'd use it again to make a garment, although it might be good as a slinky scarf. I also should have made the next size up, as it is very slightly snug across my chest! It fits nicely everywhere else though.

Wow, your Ariadne is so pretty - the colours are amazing and I love all those ruffles. The buttons and ribbon you have chosen really finish it off nicely. Great knit :)

It should be snug across the chest, it's 'enhancing' lol. It's really gorgeous, well done with persevering with your not fave yarn - Lasso ;o)

It's vey pretty, and how clever, the pattern on the fronts appears to match up almost exactly? - somehow this trick never quite works if I try to do it!
