I like the yarn you used for this project too.  It really dresses up the basic pattern.  Great job!

that looks great!  and, while for me it might take a bit more than 1.5 balls, it's still a very small amount of Kidsilk Haze for a whole top.  very inspiring!

thanks, i'm glad everyone likes it!  Smiley

please note, i didn't double the yarn up (as specified in the loop-d-loop pattern) so if you were to do so just double the yarn needed (and probably change gague)

Lovely!  I want to knit something sheer now.  I haven't ever seen the book you mentioned, but I'm going to keep an eye out for it now.

If I was any more open, I'd be inside out.

I was looking at this in the book again, and it says the fabric is stretchy.  Is it still like that in the KSH?  How much does it stretch?  Are you bored of me asking questions yet?  Will they ever end?!??! Wink

Thanks!

haha well it is a little stretchy but not as stretchy as the cotton tape or ribbon or whatever it is originally made of.  in the body portion there is some give, but where i bound off at the bottom there is not as much give.  i tried to bind off loosely but i don't know if i am truly capable of such a thing...

Are you able to post in more detail how you modified the pattern? You said that you doubled the pattern size is that right? Do you have any idea how you would go about adding long sleeves to this?

I haven't made this pattern, but have a lot of experience in knitting. Instead of binding off at the sleeves, put those stitches on waste yarn or a holder, then pick up around what would be the cast on stitches and keep going till you get where you want.
