so i started knitting the boobholder with some scrap acrylic, hoping and praying that i would have enough, since (stupid me) didn't keep the label and now can't buy it from walmart anymore. i think i got about 15 rows after seperating the sleeves and basically ran out of yarn Sad  totally not thinking that it would be long enough, i put the body on a piece of scrap and tried it on. lo and behold, it's actually long enough!

but...

the back gapes. the front fits fine, but the back is very very loose. is there any way i could make it more fitted through the back without having to rip back past the seperation of the sleeves? i was thinking of doing some K2tog's but have no idea where to place them as to be even and not look silly.

other than the back being too big, i absolutely love it! the yarn is so soft and squishy, mmm. so i'm really hoping that someone here will be able to help me adjust it so i can wear it and not look silly Smiley

thanks!

yup! i had the gaping problem to the max! (see my thread 'my boobholder. un-*sniffle*' for photographic proof)

it also contain my alterations, but in a brief rundown:
i ripped out two raglan increase rows.
once i was onto the body i decreased eleven stitches over a total of two knit rows: two under each armpit, three across the back in the firs row, one under each armpit, two across the back in the second row.

it just fits. probably could be a little smaller still.

I just finished mine and my god, my sleeves are HUGE! I almost want to rip the thing apart. But I would hate to do that too.

I think its too big too, but apparently everyone I show it to thinks its cute. hopefully I'll get a photo of it soon.

I like the idea of ties, as the button isnt working for me. I want to try it again maybe de-poofing the sleeves and shortening the body (its long on me I think... not so much as a boobholder as it just sits there. blah)

Anyway... yeah.

Thats because youre a part of something larger. Like

I did kind of a test version of a boobholder with some burgundy Red Heart, and mine is too big just like most of you guys. Plus, I'm not a fan of the puffy sleeves. They're cute but they just don't work for me. (I'm 5'10" with big-ass shoulders, so puffy sleeves are far from flattering) So I've got to frog and then do some math to see how much I need to take off.
I'm kind of envisioning it kind of like the One Skein Wonder (<a href=http://glampyreknits.tripod.com/glampyrephotos/id97.html>http://glampyreknits.tripod.com/glampyrephotos/id97.html</a>), but with the garter, and closing in front. If that makes any sense.

thought i'd add mine to the mix now that i've actually had random people ask me if i've made it! i pointed one lady to glampyre's website so that she can make one too... it's boobholder madness!


i've also made a black one for a friend... it's on my blog. i still can't get the bottom to be tight enough, will try again when i make a green one for another buddy of mine!

I forgot to post a pic of mine... It's not the best, but it's all I got....




I crossed it over infront to make it tighter across the back, and then I secured the inside overlap with sewn-in snaps Smiley

I love it!!

Kathyruth and lara did you make a lot of modifications to de-puff the sleeves?

Lulu Clyde,  I couldn't match this gauge for anythig.  My knitted gauge was smaller than the patterns gauge.  I kept knitting away anyway!  That is why my sleeves are less puffy and why my back isn't too big ( like other knitters had a problem with).   Good luck and happy knitting!
