Laminda -- can you clarify your pattern adaptation before I dive in and do something stupid? Was your yarn giving you the suggested gauge of 13 stitches to 10 cm? Or was it somewhat larger.

I'm trying to figure out how much I might want to reduce this pattern to fit my less than ample frame...

Thanks for any input you can give me!

 Flapperjakk, I'm on row 27 and mine looks just like yours....but I've been stressing out as well!  I did yarn over increases (like eyelets) and maybe that was a bad idea but I have the same number of sections as you. what i don't understand is when the pattern starts to talk about dividing the sleeves from the body....which is which? I just don't get it. Someone please help us both!!

I started this sweater last night. Since the pattern doesn't tell you how many stitches you *should* have on every row, I have no idea what the final chest measurement is supposed to be.  I emailed Ms. Glampyre, but haven't heard back...

I'm doing the increases at paired left and right leaning lifted increases.  They look so amazingly cool!

I LOVE her stuff! I'm definately going to make this when I have dropped my remaining 10-15 "vanity" preggo pounds! I got the boobs, but not the balls to wear anything that would emphasise my belly at the moment.

Alas, I've had to put my boobholder in hold, as I'm helping a knitwear designer friend prep for a big trade show.

Here is a picture of the painted increases. They look a bit lumpy, since I haven't blocked the sweater yet.



The decorative "seam" created by the increases will ultimately look like:
-----
 I I
-----
 I I
-----

et cetera


For those who are still confused about which parts are the sleeve parts...the first section on the needle (garter stitch until first increase) is the front of the sweater, the next section is the sleeve, the next (and biggest section) is the back, then you've got the other sleeve, and finally the other part of the front. Makes sense?

I agree that this pattern takes a bit of thought. But hey, it is a totally amazing and free pattern, so I don't mind if I have to work a little harder!

Whoopsie.  That should be "paired" not "painted" increases!

I can paint, I can knit, but I suuuuuuuck at typing!

Hi, this is my first post here Smiley

I've been wanting to do this "boobholder" for a long time, but english is not my first language (I'm from Portugal), so I've some problems with the pattern.
Woul it be possible to do this by knitting 5 pieces (back, 2fronts, 2sleeves) instead of one? If so, how would you do the sleeves to make that effect (sorry, can't remember the right word)?
