This was a fun top to knit. I saw a project for this top posted by another knitter using the Cotton On Denim yarn, and decided to give it a try. Both the pattern and the yarn are terrific. The yarn does not photograph very well. It is way more attractive in person. It is soft and knits up evenly into a smooth fabric. I only blocked the front plackets because they wanted to fold to the inside. The rest didn't need blocking. The pattern is well written and is the 3rd or 4th design that I've used from OGE designs. I wish that Loveknitting did not restrict their customer reviews to "invitation only." I would leave a good review, since the only review out there now for this pattern says simply "Average". Hmmm... The pleats are fun and I like the way the buttons line up with the garter ridges.
