Thanks, this was one of the first pattern for lace I ever attempted and it is pretty easy to do. I definately recommend this top.

Ok, so I know this thread has been quiet for a really long time, but I recently changed my original Lelah and started a second one.
When Lelah met tubey.


when I first saw this pattern I was so excited to get going I just grabbed the closest thing in my stash. Well the top turned out cute, but I used wool ease. Uh, duh. If it's warm enough to wear a tube top, it's too warm to wear a wool blend. If it's cool enough to wear a wool blend it's far too cold for a tube top. So I started knitting a shrug to go with it. Then I realized the construction of tubey from knitty is basically a tube top and a shrug sewn together. That was all the inspiration I needed. (yeah, yeah there are some ends left to be woven in.)

And here we have the start of Lelah #2 done in a sensible cotton yarn. Far more appropriate for summer.

OK - I think your pic may inspire me to frog my picovoli that has been languishing for months and instead make a lelah. I have that same exact yarn that looks like it would make a great lelah.  Oh man, I feel another project coming on!

Oh i love it with long sleeves! I have 2 projects ahead of this one but then I am going to be knitting this. I haven't decided if I was sleeves or just tank straps with it. I'm a big girl and very busty (44 DD) so strapless is not an option

The Tubey/Lelah hybrid is genius! I love it and will have to try it sometime.
