FO- Domino Summer Top!

It is done. Domino-knitting, my own freehand pattern. It is knitted in soft Blue Sky cotton (thick) bought in London. And it is my August (!) Sweater a Month KAL entry. Ok, a bit behind. But that is life. Two buttons to fasten it. This is the "tight" version, with the crossed straps in the back. The "loose" version would really be hot Ibiza-look. Conclusion. Took too long to do, and a lot of loose ends to fasten, and I suggest Domino is better knitted in thinner yarn, and in wool, so the ends are more easily disguised. But ok. It was an experiment. And it will be nice for the hot days. Anyhow, here are rather horrid pics of me with the two different back strapping. Anyhow, it I must admit it feels nice to think that there is weather to wear this, when it is snow outside. Ok, time to finish some more sweaters. Should not be impossible to fulfill the goal. Just a nice long christmas holiday will do it ;-) Take care... and commets are always inspiring. Hint hint....

I've only made dominoes in garter, but this looks much more wearable.I suppose the technique is a bit different, any hints for an inspired reader?
