Finished! This didn't take very long to make and I love the finshed product. I wanted something to wear over a tank on my upcoming cruise and couldn't find anything in the stores that I liked, so I searched for patterns and found this one.
Pattern: Cat's Cradle Lace Topper by Doris Chan, as printed in the January 2007 issue of Crochet!
Yarn: Some hand-dyed mercerized cotton worsted weight I've had in the stash for probably 10 years. The band says it's Crayons Lite from Rainbow Mills, Inc. I used ~238 grams / 442 yards to make the size large/extra large
Tools: Crochet hook size K/10.5/6.5mm, stitch markers
Adjustments: I found one mistake in the pattern. In Round 9, one chain 5 was left out. It was easy to spot because without that chain 5 the symmetry was broken.
I have to say that the hardest part of this project was taking a picture of it. LOL I actually started this project several times with different yarns trying to get gauge in something that would drape nicely. Once I settled on this mercerized cotton, everything went very quickly.
I'm almost finished with another topper. Hopefully it will coe out as nice as this one and I'll have pictures soon!
