This is a new crotchet pattern that Lion Brand just published on their site:

I'd like to do a knit version.  Any one know of a pattern?

I don't know how good you are at just winging your own pattern, but you could do a bikini-style top (which there are lots of patterns for) and attach the Lelah bottom part to it (which is floating around here on craftster). The only difference is that the light 'n lively tank is more full in the skirt part, and lots of the ones I've seen finished don't look all that full.  If that won't work, my only other advice is to look at these sites, there are a ton of patterns, and you might be able to find something. Hope that helps at least a little. Sorry if you already know all these sites!

Yeah, I've been thinking about winging a pattern.  And really I'm not sure about the bikini-style top but I love how the bottom flares out.  I was looking at the pattern and it looks like that there is a lot of increases at the bustline and then it continues to increase so i could do something like that.  Thanks for the advise.

I did know about knittingpatterncentral.com but not the other site.  Off to check it out.
