Whispers by Veera Välimäki
Needles & yarn
US 5 - 3.75 mm
madelinetosh Dandelion
2 skeins = 650.0 yards (594.4 meters)
Jimmy Beans Wool in Reno, Nevada

Such a lovely, delicate and feminine top, I thoroughly enjoyed knitting Whispers.

A couple of mods, I did only 3 decreases and increases for the waist shaping, separating each one by 6 rows rather than 4 as per SarahBird22’s beauty. I also knitted till the piece was 1/2 inch shorter than the pattern specified at the point of dividing the front from the back. This was because I realised Dandelion has a shorter yardage than Tosh Merino Light and I only had two skeins. All was well in the end though, I had 5g left which means I probably made the right call.

Highly recommend the yarn, it is absolutely lovely to knit with and I am in love with this colour.
