Hi everyone! Ok - so going away this weekend i needed a new bikini cover up  - i made up this pattern using my size 35 needles and then my size 17 to do the waist band... the whole project only took be about 2.5 hrs to make! I got a lot of compliments over the weekend.... i used simple white acrylic and used only a small ammount of yarn -

Here is photos of the skirt, and my friends thought it would look cute as a wrap top too!







It is 3 rows of garter, then one row with Knit one, YO twice, then the next row drop the 2 yo, and knit  - then 3 rows garter again! Then change to the smaller needles to do the waist band all in garter.... I cast on 30 st. in all ....

that is GREAT! i think i would get a workout using size 35 (35?!?) needles.  35?! I can't even fathom it.

yeah - they are pretty cool looking - bright orange and made of plastic to stay light weight - they take a bit to get used to using, but obviouly the projects go really fast - I would love to do an afghan using many multiple strands of yarn and a giant needle ( think how fast that would knit up! ) Any one have a pattern for something like that? :-)

re afghan: I bet if you use several strands of yarn that are of complementary colors (say, many shades of any one color you love), you could make a really nice afghan just with garter stitch!!

orange needles?  haha!

Ok, I am loving this...especially as a wrap top.  Did you just knit it in garter stitch until the waist band???  I need details...
