This is my version of Magknits' Emily. My changes were made out of necessity as I couldn't get the pattern to work for me (from the armholes up) as written. Don't know if it was me or my interpretation of the pattern, but it was my first top knitted in the round.

The yarn is Rowan Linen Drape. Thank you for looking. :)

very pretty. Did you like working with the linen yarn? I think it is supposed to get softer with each washing.

Thank you very much for all the lovely comments, ladies.

dip's mom: I've used linen yarn in the past that has been rather rough, but being 55% linen/45% viscose the Linen Drape is quite soft.

scout52: The yarn was nice to knit with, but being made up of very fine plies it does have a tendancy to occasionally catch on the needle and split. The
strands are matt, but once knitted up the fabric seems to have a very slight glow. The colour range is lovely, and it drapes beautifully. I was going to say I'd use it again, but I think it's been discontinued.
