Do you mean in a rectangular shape, but biased, also? Or exactly like the front?  If you want to make it like the front, you'll definitely want to have an extra ball or two.

Not sure what you meant by the back not seeming to match the front, but I'm going to try to at least semi match up the colors on my back and I'm considering adding the garter stitch ribbing as well; I haven't decided for sure on that yet as I'm just casting on the back today.  Those aren't going to be difficult changes and won't take much more yarn, just a little tweaking and a splice or two.  If you mean using the same bias pattern and handkerchief hem on the back, that would definitely require extra yarn.  Also I'd make the rear bias pieces a bit narrower to allow for the lack of stretching required back there.  Could be interesting!

I guess I wasn't to clear!  It just bothered me so much I figured it would be obvious to other people as well.

It doesn't seem right to me that the front is pointed at the bottom, but the back is straight and is significantly higher at the bottom.  I REALLY like the front, but I hate the back.  I haven't taken too close of a look at the pattern, so I'm not sure if there's any shaping being used or not, and if I did make the back like the front then I know I'd need to take that into account as well.

If it lives in the water or flies in the air, I'm in love with it. In New Zealand I saw a flying fish and almost wet myself.

Anybody made any progress?  I really want to get started on this one but I think I've got some more stash busting to do first...

Count me in on this one.  I just ordered the yarn, it'll be here by next week.

I'm in too, if you don't mind! I've never knitted anything for myself (expect for some scarves and half a sock Wink) and I'm very bad at finishing projects, so hopefully this KAL will keep me motivated to finish this!
I'm almost finished with the first half of the front. I'll try to post some progress pics soon.

I have this started, but I got sidetracked by knitted nekkid men that The Cats Mother has been leaving all over hte place. Wink I also made several modifications:

1. I'm knitting it in one piece from the top down, adding the straps after I've completed the body.
2. I started at front center, and did yo increases 3 stitches from the end of each rs row. The decreases are regular decreases.
3. I've omitted the garter stitches, and am just doing stockinette (for now, I might add something special at the hem.
4. I'm just using a solid red cotton worsted weight yarn leftover that I got at a post-christmas sale.

I'll have progress pics sometime after Hell's Kitchen.

Here are progress pics for my (sort-of) askew:

There's a bit of a view of the knitting.

Both front pieces together. The eyelets created by the yo increases will eventually be home to some sort of lacing.

I'm torn between working on this, finishing my knitted nekkid man, trying to create a knitted nekked woman, and finishing my huge grannysquare stash-busting blanket....sigh.

That's looking good singlemom, looks like you got a lot done allready!

 This is what mine looked like a couple of days ago; I'm almost done with the first half front now, working on the strap, hopefully tomorrow I'm casting on for the second half!
