Thanks for the tip about the facing. This top is my next project and your top is a great example. Love the color too!

LoriB: I think Burda means 4-way. They state "2-way" instead of 1-way. Make sense? I think the twist of this pattern requires the 4-way.

Thanks all, I just used a 4-way thinking that was what it needed . Rennie, it is a great knit, a surprise find at J's

Wow, I would have thought that was an EOS knit. Your top is beautiful!

I really like this top in pink. I hope my second try of this pattern turns out as nice.

That color is fabulous and the top is beautiful. I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of Burda's April issue, also.

Very nice :)) I love this top, more so than the Simplicity one, specially as it doesn't have a seam down the front. Ooops! In my hurry to make this top, I used a 4 way stretch and it turned out fine.

Hi from another Lori! Yours is the first review I've seen on this pattern that mentioned using 4-way stretch. I was going to make this using 4-way but was scared off by the emphasis Burda placed on using only 2-way knits. I couldn't imagine that 4-way would pose a problem. Did it? Your top looks fantastic.

Gorgeous top Lori and a lovely color.I'm looking forward to getting this issue of Burda soon. Thank goodness I reserve a copy as I would hate to miss this one!
