Super, super easy top. Perfect for all the Cotton-Ease I hoarded away back when Lion Brand said they were going to discontinue it. I will certainly be making more of these. I used JCHandmade's instructions for creating gathered cap sleeves, but I think next time I will make them a little tighter. The pattern runs up to about a size 5. I made this one a little larger by changing my gauge and adding more increases under the arms. I also added some ribbing at the bottom to avoid any curling. As you can see, she thought it turned out well enough to actually try it on and pose for a few shots. She also kept it on for the rest of the day, so I guess it passed the fashion test. It gets harder and harder to compete with Hannah Montana shirts done up with rhinestones and glitter. Hannah Montana WISHES she had a sweater this cool!
