Mermaid Dreams

The pattern is live!  This was a test knit that I finished a few weeks back but didn't have a modeled pic of it until now.  I finally got around to shipping it off to the recipient and her mom took some beautiful pics of Pria and the top.  Speaking from a test knitter's point of view, there was a lot of hard work and consideration, by the designer, to make this a well fitting top.  Taking a look at the number of test knitted FOs is a testament to this.  In fact, I would say this tank fits better than any other child's top pattern I've ever seen.  As knit, this top should fit a child ranging from 6-8 years old and took less than 300 yards in a worsted weight yarn.  The pattern is quite comprehensive in that it offers sizing from newborn to 6 years, in three different yarn weights, several length options, and finally, many hem alternatives.

Doesn't Pria's mom, Lynna, take beautiful pictures?  I could never do this top justice.  And it fits Pria perfectly!
