G-g-g-g-gradient!

I love this top.  It’s Whispers, another brilliant design by Veera Valimaki.  I love her style.  The pattern was originally called “Wispers” on Ravelry and in the magazine preview, and “Whispers” in the pattern itself.  It has since been corrected on Ravelry to read “Whispers”.  I fixed my previous posts since the library graduate assistant me couldn’t stand to have all of those incorrect keywords floating around.whispers-3

This top is meant to be worn with more ease, but I only had 635 yards in my gradient kit, and I was hesitant to buy a second kit since these yarns are not sold separately.  I decided to knit the smaller size, add a bit of length for my long waist, and not worry so much about the extra ease since it would still fit at this size.  I still like the effect, and I’m so happy the kit worked for this!whispers

The kit is the Terra Cotta colorway from Black Trillium Fibres on Etsy.  I used all but a couple of yards for this project.  If you recall from an earlier post, I did run out of yarn and I ripped back to the waist decreases and made a few alterations so that I wouldn’t run out a second time.  It was a bit of a pain, but worth it to save the cost of an extra kit.  I’m sure I could have found a good use for more of these beautiful colorways though…whispers-2

  1. Very nice! And the first thing I though was, oh, it’s long enough! (Because I have a long waist too and so many tops out there these days are too darned short – I’m always tugging on them!)

  2. I love this!!! I bought the pattern the other day and just LOVE the idea of using a gradient! So wonderful!! It looks great – wear it well!

  3. Really lovely. Fits you perfectly. I love the sleeve openings. Reminds my of sleeve styles in the Middle Ages.

  4. Thank you for sharing this article quite interesting and, hopefully true happiness rays began to warm our hearts, when we can share it with sincerity. Greetings from Gede Prama 🙂
