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?

-Wendy

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.


Thank you for the info. I love that you used Carons Simply Soft. Smiley I'm on a very very super-duper tight budget (planning my wedding) and can't really afford any other yarn plus its also my favorite and use it for a lot of things so I was excited to see that your Lelah came out looking beautiful with the Simply Soft yarn.

I can't wait to get started on mine. Thanks again for the info!  Cheesy

Yay!  I started this on Thursday, and just couldn't put it down.  I added "brick slings" because my boobs would swing down to the floor otherwise. 

This pattern is so awesome.  I just made this one with Microspun, but will buy a real nice fancypants yarn for the next one.  I am gonna make daily Lelahs - like those Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday underwear.  It's gonna be a wardrobe revolution!

that looks great....hmmm microspun i never thought to use that... did you double strand or anything?  i love the straps, they arent too thick or too thin.

slimissaw...im sure it will look great with seed stitch, it'll be a new variation!

Nope just did single strand, and used smaller (size 7 needles).  I just modified the number of stitches to reflect the differenter gage.  It turned out nice and stretchy and comfy.

Yeah, all I did was bind off as usual, but did a regular knit on 11 stitches (each set of 11 stitches for the straps is 7 inches apart) and left these 11 stitches on a stitch holder.

I then went back and did some light shaping on each of the straps.  I did 3 rows of regular stockinette, and then did p2tog at the first and last stitches of the next row, and then k2tog and the first and last stitch on the next row.  This leaves me with 7 stitches for the rest of the strap, and gives the strap a nice graduated effect.

I continued with regular stockinette for the length of each strap, bound off, and then seam stitched each of the straps to the back, aligned with the placement on the front.  Viola!

Holy crap!  Genius!  Beautiful!....it's...it's..it's Incredible!  (sorry, on a napoleon kick)  Beautiful Job!  I like your version better.  Being short and a bit chubby, tube tops make me feel like a walking stubby fool.
