Bobopido - Finally done.

This top has taken more time than entisipated and I am so satisfied to have made it to the end.

I have knitted it from the top the Barbara Walker way with set in sleeves.  
Short rows has was added at the bust for more fabric over the boobs.
Under the bust I decreased 1/6 th of the stiches.
side shaping and some shaping at the pack to avoid the fabric to ride up at the back.

A few shortrows added at the back at the waist and then shortrows was added at the back before the edge was knitted.
Finally after the edge was cast off a crouched picot edge was added.

yarn: doubled crouche yarn from the stash
needles: 3mm addi
gauge: 28*39 10cm

The sweater would be more flattering if I had not decreased so much under the bust, a bit more ease would have made the fabric follow my figure more losely.

Marja, Ah the pattern was in my hands and my fingers, excel sheets and paper pieces.
All calkulations are made to fit me. I am working on a new project though where I plan to have the pattern written down properly so that I can share.

Thanks for all nice comments, It makes me very happy to see that you like my design.
