A while back, almost 2 years now I think, I have finished this top I made out of Elsebeth Lavold Hempathy, it was a designing attempt for something summery, simple, but enough detail and flair to be interesting. At that time I didn’t happen to take any notes on the process and it was when a whole lot of knitters started requesting this pattern. I tried to resize it from what I had to work with and last month I actually bit the bullet and have re-knit the whole top from a different yarn, but having learnt so much more since way back when the original was created, the pattern turned out quite pleasing!
And now I am so proud to present Grecian top [Ravelry link] to all of you, readers, knitters and lurkers 😀

Such a happy day that you have posted the pattern. This has always been one of my favorites of your designs. I loved the simplicity of the design with the dressiness of the cable edging.
Oh, wow. That’s so pretty! I don’t think I saw the first incarnation! I love the neckline on it – so simple, and yet so very feminine.
Glad to see this is up!! Now I REALLY can’t wait to have my baby, so I can knit something for ME again!
Congratulations, Olga! Well done. And 13 sizes?! Now, THAT’S amazing. 🙂
It’s gorgeous and so elegant♥ Congratulations!!
Congratulations! It looks quite lovely – and now I want one. This may be next on the list after I finish the denim sweater. 🙂 You never cease to amaze me!
The neckline is adorable! I just wish I could wear it–my DDDs can’t handle a strapless bra. 🙁
Kym, it doesn’t need a strapless bra.
check here, Rosemary is wearing a bra and she is a D.
gorgeous, olga! i want to make this for ME!
What great classic, sophisticated top. Love that I could wear this to work with a skirt and pumps or at night with jeans. Congrats!
It was great to run into you at the MD Sheep & Wool fest & again at Teaism the other day. Funny how I didn’t realize that the Petal Halter was your design. When I saw it in IK I wanted to make it right away. Bravo, my dear! Your designs are simply amazing.
love love love! such a perfect fit and the detailing is simple yet exquisite. congrats on another beautiful design! hugs, kate
Lovely Olga! I’m in the US for a visit and hoping to catch up with you maybe at the yarn store!
Beautiful. I have been watching you knit online since well before Ravelry. I knew you would be design fabulous sweaters. I was right!
Gorgeous design…I have added it to my queue!
