Hi Vickie,

Here is a closeup of my the chain top stitch that I added.  sorry it is so BIG and blurry!

Also, I found this  website link with a description of the stitch I used....I think it is also called a daisy chain?

Hope this helps!

I finished my Bella a few weeks back and have been carrying it around looking for a shirt to wear underneath. This is one of them.  I get cold and I know the bare arms are not going to be comfortable for me as the weather cools.  I made the length an inch shorter because I am short wasted and I think it's ok.  

Had fun!

Perfect Maggie!

Yes, this KAL was fun. I took mine out yet again, worked it from the top down  - this was going pretty good but after a while I got tired of the project. The upshot, I took it out again and I'm making a purse with the same yarn (Weekend) from another pattern by our Bella designer. Yoyo tote at berroco.com for anyone else interested Wink

a tote sounds like a fun project .... I am working on a winter project right now...http://www.berroco.com/exclusives/wisteria/wisteria.html.  Really, really sweet looking, but the pattern ....wow .... I have never been so challenged.

Hi Anne,

Thanks for the pic and website address....I already checked it out!!  That is just what I tried to accomplish with the crochet shain, but couldn't figure out how to attach it...Your finish is perfect with it...can't wait to "do" mine.

It helped so much...Vickie

Hi Maggie,

You are the clever one, with the colored leaves....it turned out great, and I do like the idea of wearing a long tee underneath for Fall!!!  My Bella is kind of short for me, but I'm pretty tall.  When I measured it, I thought it would be long enough....yours however, looks like it was "made" that way and is very SASSY!  I hope mine looks that good with a tee.

I think we are ALL having  a lot of fun with this project.

Maggie,

Your bella looks great!  I have been looking forward to seeing it since you posted a picture of the band with the coloured leaves.  I'm still working away at the neck inserts but all these beautiful photos are keeping me motivated.

Maggie, I love the contrasting color on the leaves.  You look awesome in the aqua color!  And the long sleeve top under it is perfect!  Anne

Thanks for the nice compliments. I am somewhat limited in technique. My collar is a bit cowley, an oops I can live with, and my stitches are not all that uniform, but that's ok, too. As a wise knitter once said, if you can't see the mistakes from a galloping horse, than don't sweat it. As I said before, I had fun and enjoyed the exchange of ideas. I learned so much.

The first thing I'd do is make a chart  with a visit to http://chartgen.orangellous.com

Thanks for the link. I visited the site but don't quite understand how or where one inputs the written instructions. Is there more info other than their 'help' page? I'm sure like most things it will be perfectly clear once I have the 'ah ha' moment.

all the finished Bella's are beautiful - i'm a little behind ...  i'm knitting in the round and am almost done with it - i have a question - can i put the last of the stitches on stitch holders and use the kitchner stitch to sew them together??  i've only done that stitch once on socks but it is a nice finish??  or should i bind off and use mattress stitch - i did leave a few extra stitches on the arm hole side so my sleeve cap would hang off my shoulder more - if that makes a diff - i will have 15 stitches on both front and back

you have to mess around with it for a while,  make it work for you...if you don't understand the repeat option (which I am struggling with, then just copy and paste .. works fine.

Wondering if there's a chart for the right neck insert and left  neck insert from Erika.  I loved the original one she did.  Thanks.
