My new favorite pattern, by the very talented Stefanie (aka Glampyre,
http://www.glampyre.com/log/index.shtml



I used almost 4 skeins of Noro Fuji in color 101, which is bulkier than
the pattern calls for - it's written for worsted weight, or slightly heavier. 
Best of all, this is knit in one piece, so there's almost no seaming! 
Pattern is free and can be found here:

It looks so HOT! I would love to make one. But I'm rather--ahem--chesty. Do you think it would look decent on someone who is above a 36C?

And how long did it take you to make it? It would look really HOT in red over a black dress. Yowza.

Thanks for reminding me of this great piece. And I love love love the colors you chose for yours.

Miss Dottie, there are special directions on her site for what to do if you're kinda busty. Go to the page Laminda linked to and scroll down just a bit.... you'll see. I think you just have to add a couple of extra rows.

Thanks, Miss D!  Now, let's see if I can figure out this posting interface & answer questions...

Was it hard to do?

Nope - - it's a very straightforward pattern.  I did have to rip out and make a few adjustments because I'm somewhat...um...underendowed, and my first version was a bit too roomy.  For the 2nd version, I cast on 10 fewer stitches and eliminated all but 2 increases for the lower part of the body.

And how long did it take you to make it?

About 4 days, give or take.

Abso-friggin'-lutely!  As IndiaRomeo mentioned, Stefanie posted an addendum to the pattern that increases the cup size by adding decorative eyelets (YOs) and extra rows.  You could also throw in some short rows, if you're feeling ambitious.

I must knit this! It reminds me of those little short jackets that they wear in Jane Austen movies, I know they have a proper name. I'm glad you mentioned your adjustments for the less busty like me.

Oh wow, this is nifty!  Damn I must learn to knit.  Is it hard to learn?  I crochet, but totally suck at converting patterns.

I don't think it's hard to learn at all.  I taught myself how in a weekend and if you're not good at alterations have someone who's good at math do it.
