I've always used whip stitch for seams and they're flat and near enough to invisible that you'd have to look very closely to find them. I even have trouble locating them sometimes if I want to undo/redo something.

Either use a larger needle or make a larger size.

On your next knit row, it will say Ktbl, K1, Ktbl at some point. Stick in the marker after the first Ktbl - so it'll go Ktbl marker K1 Ktbl.

good luck!

Oh thanks for clarifying. I didn't use markers so couldn't say whether it should go before or after the the first ktbl, and didn't have time to look up the pattern.

soapturtle, yoursis beautiful! I really like the striping.

I started this for real today, and I have a question. I didn't place a marker the first time it told me, because it seemed unneccesscary. Now I'm at the end of section 1 and realized section 2 is all about the markers.  Shocked

So, should I have 3 markers? and if so, where should the third one go?

It's hard to see int he pic, but the pink marker is 3 stitches from the point of the needle

I think in the middle.

I was going to start on it last night, but I need to find a yarn to use.  I was going to use Simply Soft that I have laying around, I didn't realize it uses bulky weight.

If you have enough of it, several people have used SS doubled and get the bulky weight gauge.

thanks! i just added two more increase repeats an it's measuring 22 inches, which sounds good to me! am finding this pattern so strangely addictive.

For every increase/drop stitch you have, you'll probably increase by about
 half an inch in width, so you may gain a few more inches.

hi guys,
sori.its me again bout the drop yarn over.so according to shadkitty,I should just slide the stich off the needle.My question is that when you acually do yarn over,2 stiches are formed instead of 1.So when I drop yarn over,I slide both the stiches off or only 1?Thanx so much.I did fine up to that point.Got confused/Didn't look rite n had to unravel the whole thing n start all over again.Arghhhhh....Thanks guys,for your help

Right, you have two stitches instead of one, then when you get to the next row, slide off the yo and knit the original stitch. This will make all the stitches on that row elongated, which is what makes it lacy-looking. If you drop both stitches everything unravels.

It's cute an all, but it's virtually identical to two of Teva's patterns from her book Loop-D-Loop. If you cross the Ballet TShirt with the Steek shirt, you get exactly the same thing. I've knit both patterns. You can see pictures of the various shirts here.


And Grumperina's tivoli/picovoli and several other patterns use the same raglan cast on and shaping. It's a basic pattern - what makes all of the variations unique is the combinations. I'm making one now based on tivoli, with a lacy inset like Green Gables and the lower 6 inches is the lace pattern from Lelah. I may try one like this one, one of these days (or years).

You could try kitchen cotton type yarn, like Lion's Cotton, or Sugar n Cream.

Check out the Lelah thread. It's strapless, but many people have been putting straps on it.
