Yes, the Maxi Top. It's really called that and if you can get over the name (I personally had a little trouble there) then you're in business because it is such a fun, simple and FAST! pattern. I first tried to make this one for Addie but it ended up being way too big because I didn't make a gauge swatch, as usual. Silly? Yes, but I do it all the time. Do you think I could learn? Nope. I can't. So now this one belongs to Carmel . It's cute. It fits her. She loves it. What more could I ask for?
And you see, Addie still got hers and now they can match which I always love. I hate admitting that I'm one of those moms that like making their children wear matching clothes, but I do it. I'm one of those. The only thing I didn't like about these tops was the yarn choice. I used some sort of organic Lion Brand somethin' somethin' that I found on sale somewhere and it pills so badly that it makes me want to yank out my hair. Addie's has gotten quite a bit more wear than Carmel's but I have hand washed it and laid it out to dry each time I've cleaned it and it still pills and looks way more ragged than it should. Annoying.here on Ravelry or here, if you aren't on Ravelry--so I can't complain. And I suppose as long as they're wearing them we will always have the fun game of playing, who-can-pick-the-most-tiny-little-yellow-and-white-balls-off-their-sweater?
Something to look forward to.
