This is Jewel from Custom Knits the book by Wendy Bernard. It was a very fast knit. the yarn is Ester Bitran Hand-Dyes Linares. It has a sheen to it.

I thought it was going to stripe like the waist section but I was wrong. But I think it came out ok.At least I hope so. I'm trying to branch out to other than solid yarns. LOL. Anyway give me your honest opinion please!!

I think it's gorgeous! I love how the colors pooled in a stripey effect!

I actually really like it! It's funky and got it's own personality that I really like! And believe me, I would tell you otherwise if I thought so since you asked for honesty!! I like the pink and gray stripes. I would wear it!

That's a great top, the yarn stripes and pools just right for your figure and the 'cut' of the pattern.

Great job!

You've definitely got the figure for it and I really like the way the yarn worked out, gives it character!

Beautiful! And a great fit. I really like the striping effect at the waist -- looks as if you planned it!

Looks great - you definitley have the figure to carry it off!

it looks great

it might have striped differently than you hope, but the way the stripes are accent your tiny waist!

gotta knit

I love it. the stripes and pooling all happen in exactly the right places. You could not have improved on that if you tried.

Congrats! It turned out wonderful! The fit looks perfect! Great job!

I simply LOVE the way the yarn 'striped' and 'zigged' and 'zagged'! I think it made the simple top VERY INTERSTING and like it was an 'on purpose' color design. I try to imagine it with the skinny stripes...and just don't think it would be half as WOW as it is now!

This is beautiful. The striping, IMHO, is PERFECT.

Great job matching the yarn with the pattern!!
