I finally finished my corset pullover!  

It's free pattern from interweave knits.  You can find it on their web site.  I used Knitpicks shine sport.  The pattern called for a worsed weight yarn so altering it took a lot of math!  I think it was well worth it, though.  I love the thinner fabric and the drape I got with the thinner yarn.  

I left off the straps on the sides because I think the pattern is "fussy" enough without additional accessories.  The best part is that it's something I'd actually wear!  

I have a close up picture on my blog.

It looks wonderful. I love the Corset pullover and hope I can pull it off one day.

How long did it take to knit?
Was it easy/hard ?
Any pattern notes?

Oh I love it! I've been planning this out out in my head for so long. I need to get some in progress items done so I can start on it. I love the drape and color of yours. I wonder if my math deficient brain could hand the computing to do it in a thinner yarn like yours. Hmm...

That is totally beautiful!

I've been wanting to make this for a while, and I like your smaller gauge version better than the original, I think. If you'd be willing to share your math alterations I would be forever grateful (but I totally understand if you don't want to!)

I knit this in the smallest size size and added about an inch to the length.  If you would like my pattern for the smaller gauge, I'll share it with you.  Right now, it's all scribbled on the back of the pages of the original pattern so it will take me some time to type it up.  I'm going out of town this weekend so it will probably have to wait until next week.

Wow, that looks AWESOME in the thinner yarn! I made this pattern (in cotton) and then frogged it because it was SOOO heavy and looked too bulky on me. But your version ROCKS!!!

It turned out beautiful. I especially like the color you used. I have been wanting to make the corset pullover for ages.  Cheesy
