Just the kind of halter top I'm looking for!!!
Can I ask about the gauge? I'm pretty new to knitting so I'm too afraid to try it without a gauge (I'm gonna use different neddle size and possibly different yarn weight) since I cant possibly count how many stitches I need to cast on myself lol
Thnx for the tutorial

Haha, you're lucky to be such a smart beginner.  When I made this eight months ago I didn't even know what 'stitch gague' meant.
It's 16 1/2 stitches to 4 inches (hm, that's random).
I hope that helps!

I'd love to try this in the Bernat Satin...  anyone know how many balls it takes?  I can't see the second pix - will try again at home tonight, but I too would like it longer. 

Great job - I'm excited to try a summer top.  Thanks!

I really love this top, Id love to make patterns on my own, too, and not just modify them - this wonderful work really encourages me to try it, too. Great job!

wow this looks great!
i want to make myself a dress with the same pattern. but I'm afraid i'm not as good as i think i am...
are round needles the needles that are linked at either end with like a tube-ish thingy?
do i really need that (cause i dont want to spend the money on it)?
can i make my own, i have a lot of plain needles?
and how do i decrease a stich?

Yes, round needles are the kind that are attached with a plastic cable between them.  You'll need a pair if you don't want to have to seam your project, which always sucks.  But technically you can knit this on straights.
The simplest decrease is just to knit two stitches together.

I just love your halter pattern!
I'm definately going to try and make one for myself.
But there is one part in the pattern, that I don't understand.   Undecided
And I'm really hoping that you won't mind, helping me out.
After you say Continue this until it's 10" (for a belly shirt), or longer, according to preference.
The line after that, confuses me.
It states: "Make one more stipe so that the first 60 stitches are ribbed like the waistband and the rest is regular stocking stitch."
Does this mean that somewhere near the top, there are a few rows of ribbing?
And if so, how many rows are ribbed, and where?
I'll probably be using a self-striping yarn, or a cotton with a coloured trim.
But I won't start on it, until hopefully somebody can clarify that line for me.
Sorry to be a pest, but I'm fairly new to knitting. I'm certainly anxious to get started.
Thank you so very much, for sharing your beautiful pattern with us.  Kiss
I appreciate that very much, and I look forward to seeing more photos posted soon.
