Ooh...modifying this into a wrap top thingy would be nice.  I can NOT find a pattern for one that I like.  But unfortunately I'm not the greatest at modifying patterns.  I'm just seconding the notion, I guess.

Done!  What a fast knit.  And it helped me decrease my stash, and gave me something to wear over my "wedding dress" (the dress I wear every time I'm invited to a wedding).

I know people have asked before, but I can't find an answer anywhere that helps me.  I really do not understand row 15.  Do I Knit, then increase in front of the stitch marker, then split the five increases evenly between the stictches between the two stitch markers, then add another increase after the marker and repeat for the other sleeve?  Is this the part that makes it poofy?
If anyone could clarify, and possibly, since I can't find them anywhere, give me directions for non-poofy sleeves I would be extremely grateful.  I can't wait to finish this project!
Thanks!

EDIT: GAH!! Found it! Seesh, this is the second time this has happened in this week!! I am so out of it-sorry Cheesy

Here is another... this time with Noro, a beautiful yarn.  Unfortunately horizontal stripes make me feel like a linebacker...

No resemblance between you and a linebacker noted by any member of craftster!

need some help... I'm at the part where I've knitted to 34 rows and put the whole thing on scrap yarn and try it on.... what am I looking for?  how long should it be by now?

It sits on my shoulders but the pattern says the sleeves should match your underarms?  I don't get it, please help so I know where to go from here!

it just means it should be long enough to meet under you arms. if you put it on, it should go over your shoulder and the ends of the sleeve section should have enough room to connect to each other without being too tight at the armpit. HTH!

I finished my boobholder! Grin
It's super-d-duper!
I decided to make the sleeves 3/4 length and bell them ever so slightly. Turned out awesome.
I used lamb's pride worsted weight yarn.
Hope you like it!
