Tea Party Top Reviewed by tjensen on 2014-06-02 *****
This is ridiculously easy, and so very cute! I didn't make very many modifications other than I worked in the round and changed to i-cord ties. The colors are for the University of Texas Longhorns. I knit "lefty"/Continental, so the two-tone was made by holding the white in one hand and the burnt-orange in the other which gave it a really interesting twist. I made it a couple of years ago in approximately size 4, but it's so soft and flow-y that it continues to fit my beautiful granddaughter. :)
