Roselette top

Roselette top, originally uploaded by ambrosianbeads.

I've been working hard on finishing this adorable top for my niece. I made another one for my 3 year old niece's birthday a few weeks ago and started one for the 2 year old last Monday. Unfortunately, the yarn was too thin and I looked like it would only fit a 6 month old. So I used some variegated wool I bought at a thrift store and it turned out only a little too big for her. You can see how the colorway changes more rapidly on the top part as the pattern requires turning rows. On the lower part, the pattern works in the round so the colors are more blended. There is a large section of yellow on the back, but oh, well, I didn't have much time to cut and restart the yarn at different color points.
