You can't go wrong with cashmere! After I bound off the back stitches I decided to slip this on to see how it was going to fit. I realized there was no way this was going to fit over my hips like a nightie should. I also realized there was no way I was going to frog and reknit it in a larger size. So I decided it would make a very cute tank. I really did not take note of my mods but if I remember correctly I added an extra pattern repeat before the waist shaping. I also added a few more waist decreases. I am thinking there is a problem with the measurement in the schematic, because there is no way with a gauge of 6 sts per inch that you can decrease 8 sts and lose 3.75 inches...so beware if you are planning to knit this. On the Upper Back and Front portion I put the pattern aside, instead of following the pattern I BO 1 at the beginning of each row until I had 68 sts on the needle then BO all sts. As soon as I read the pattern I knew there was no way in hell I was knitting all that i-cord for the straps. Instead I bought some lace and backed it with satin ribbon then sewed them on making sure to place them where they would cover my bra straps.





Yarn: 4 ply cashmere from PlumKnits, 2 skeins, 200 yds per skein. I did have a little egg sized ball of yarn leftover.

Needles: US5 circs
Size: small

Add this to my list of favorite knits! The pattern was easy to follow and the cashmere was a dream to knit with.

There are a few more pics on my blog.

Y'all thanks so much!

april_cocaine: I just measured mine and it is actually half an inch longer than the original based on the measurements given in the schematic. So heads up!

i first started knitting this one a while back but got all the way to the back bind off and hated its baggy shapelessness.  i frogged it back a good portion of the way and added a TON more waist shaping and quite a bit of length.  mine will most likely end up being a tank or vest to be worn over some sort of top.  part of the original problem was poor choice of yarn substitution, but i'm hoping it will eventually turn out alright. 

i'd set it aside and thought to just frog it altogether, but maybe all of yours will inspire me to get back to work on it Smiley

I have to confess - I frogged all 4 inches of mine. It was wasn't working well with the yarn. I'm now doing Honeymoon from Knitty instead. I might come back to this one day.
