Upside-down Top

This top is made up of crocheted lace for the body and ribbing at the waist. As according to the pattern, it should be 3/4 sleeves length. But I did it shorter as I feel more comfortable wearing it in shorter sleeves. I used 6 balls of Japanese yarns. These yarns are very fine, they are nice and suitable for crochet. But for the ribbing part, i used double strand.
I like this top because i can wear it the normal way,
where the ribbing is at my waist, like this:
or
turn it up-side down, like this: Closer view of the pattern

Hi Annie,

I am pretty new to knitting, and have been having problems purchasing nice yarns in KL.

Where and/or how do you purchase your gorgeous yarns and knitting related stuff?

Thanks for your help.

Celine, thanks for visiting my blog! You are right, to get nice yarns in KL is difficult and they are vy expensive. We have a group of M'sian/S'pore knitters here and most of us buy our knitting stuff online. E-mail me @nskannie@yahoo.com should you need further informaiton.
