I think the Lotus Blossom top looks a little like Leelah, with a bit of Tubey for the straps.  Cheesy   Basically the Leelah (lace pattern is different) with straps and not so snug under the bust.

Mine were in between... about 15 inches. It curls up into a scarf and unfolds for a shoulder/upper arm warmer. Make it the width you want.

I've always slipped knitwise if I was knitting the next stitch (or the row) and slipped purlwise if the next stitch was purl.

Could be you just need to gently tug on the yarn on the last purl and first knit stitches and see if that helps.

These are so cute I wish I could knit. I do however crochet.


Wouldn't be that hard to crochet either....

I wish I had found out about the non-stitch marker way before starting.  I don't think you can switch once you've been doing it the other way, can you??

By `non stitch marker way' you mean purling the stitches between the two twisted ones, right? Yes you can switch. Those are the ones that will be dropped, so it doesn't matter if they were originally knitted or purled.

Hi everyone! Thanks so much for the compliments.

Knits_with_animals, I used a single strand and size 4 needles. I wanted the stitches to be tightly knit. Knitpicks lace sounds like a great idea. You might even have to triple strand that.

I'd recommend that, or double strand at least, if you're used to fine yarn and small needles.

Is there a way to make the sleeves longer? I wouldn't mind having them to my elbow...

I guess just repeat the first 2 rows more?

You could do that, or add extra rows and make it as long as you need. Seam up the extra length for the sleeves.

Looks to as though the pattern goes up 4" between sizes, not 8".  So how about knitting the S - it's 37".  You could try it with a little looser tension and that should be about right.

That would work only if use an even smaller needle than recommended. And is it meant to be a snug fit, or loose?

The other thing you could do is make the inbetween size by taking the difference in the number of sts cast on, divide by 2 and add that to the small size. Like if the CO for the back is 68 and 84, the difference is 16, half is 8 and you'd cast on 76.
Do the same for the fronts.
