A question for all of you Orangina experts. Do you think that Lion Brand Microspun would work for this? I am looking for a nice pattern to use some of my stash up on and the microspun has been at the start of about four projects.

I finally finished! I'm generally really happy with the fit, I did the size small and it's just right. the yarn is dmc cotton senso, 100% cotton.


If you don't mind me asking, what size do you usually wear? I'm planning to start up on this pattern by next week and I would like to know if this pattern run small, meaning I usually wear a large but should I knit this in an x-large.

By the way, your Orangina came out beautiful. The strip looks like it was done on purpose.

designdiva, carrieoke made hers out of microspun in a purple color and it turned out well i think. She has a blog, just google.

rosecomet, i have a large bust (36) but a small frame. I made the medium for one half and the small for another and I would give anything to go back and really downsize. This pattern runs large as it is lace. I hope this helps.

Thanks everyone for the nice comments. For some reason the stripe reallly bothers me, I'm even thinking about dyeing the whole piece black or something. Anyone tried doing that with 100% cotton? I just don't want to not wear it after all the time I put in, ya know? But I'm being  way too perfectionistic.... I know....

Rosecomet -- I usually wear a medium in tops. My bust is a 34d. I'm glad I did the small though - it's not tight at all. I think it makes sense to go down a size from what you usually do. So if you usually wear a large you might want to do the medium size.

Can you contact the place you bought it and see if they can send you some of the same dyelot?  Redoing the ribbing wouldn't be terrible.  I still think that's not right that they'd give you different dyelots in the same kit.

Here's mine.  I finished this on Sunday.  The only thing I did different was double strand the ribbing, and drop a needle size for it.  I like how it turned out, I just wish the waist had a little more shaping to it.  A co-worker suggested I run some elastic along the inside of the shirt, not to sure about that, so I'm open to other suggestions.

Necia, it looks great! Maybe you could run a ribbon through some of the holes at the bottom of the lace section, and use that to cinch it a little tighter?

What yarn did you use?

I used Patons Grace and size 3 and 0 addi's.  I made the next size after the smallest, and cast on 103.  I'm going to go buy some 1/8" elastic today after work, and just make the ribbing more flarey.
