I absolutely love this pattern, but I am not sure it will look okay on my, ahem, ample bosom.  I wear a 36 D.  Has anyone else made one that is this large??  My measurement are 33" above 36" across and 30" below.  I would love to hear from someone!!!  Especially if you have a pic!!

Thanks.

I've been lurking around on here for a while and just wanted to share my Lelah--thanks for the great pattern!

Oooh!  Oooh!  I was also planning on using Simply Soft because I will be toting this sucker around on my vacay, and I want to be able to wash it when I get back.  Did you make the size M, or did you follow your own measurements?

Well, I didn't want to do any calculations myself, so I just did the size M with smaller needles to get a tighter gauge and scale it down a bit.  I figured I'd be a size small.  I think that it worked, but I'm kinda new to all this gauge swatchy stuff, so who knows!  Anyway, probably not the best method, but it does fit!

I'm not sure whether that was a specific question for MerLeigh or not, but I thought I'd add my own two cents. I did size M, and it fits me. The most important thing, I think, is the elastic. As long as the elastic holds it up you won't have any problems, unless it is too small.

Bigang100 look no further.. I'm 32 across the top, a whopping 41 across the fullest part of the bust and a 32 below. I need to go back on a diet.

Thank you so much HelenaJane (I feel like I just thanked a comic book hero!!!).  So, I should be fine if I just follow the pattern for your large!!  Yeah!!

P.S.  I love your blog which I read faithfully.  I agree, DMV sucks.  And lastly, you certainly don't need to go on a diet--you are absolutely beautiful!

Okay, I am totally making this top happen ASAP!!!  I think I am going to use one of the new Knitpicks yarns...maybe Shine.  It is sport weight and I would have to have an XL size so any helpful hints would be great!!!!

Thanks for a great pattern!!!  I love it!

For mine I just used a cheapie yarn--Caron simply soft in plum wine.  So the whole thing cost about $3!

I love how yours came out. Can you tell me what size needles you used to make it with?

Thanks!  I think I just used size 7s for the whole thing.  So my gauge was totally different than the pattern, more like 5 sts per inch.  I figured that way I'd be sure it wasn't see thru at the top and it'd a little slimmer fitting.
