This is my first posting and finished wearable. I enjoyed the pattern and can't wait to make more. Thanks to everyone that posted ( and the designer!) for giving me the inspiration to get off my boootay and knit something other than a baby sweater.

I made a plain beige one and it came out nice this was very easy. I have a strange question, can you make this out of eyelash or boa fabric?
Now my mother (who thinks i am her personaly knitter now) wants one in eyelash or feather like boa. Would I use one strand of say cotton or something as a base and one strand of the boa yarn? Would I use 2 strands of boa together alone? I just dont seem to be savy in experimentation. Any advice wouldbe appreciated.
Also Rachillsk8 that green is beautiful, I love it!!

I would do it with cotton and the boa. Or a boa and homespun.

Geez, this thread is loooooong!  I feel so inspired, and like I have a billion craftsters who've got my back if something goes wrong on this!  I'm starting on this today with a cheap practice yarn, my ultimate goal is to do it in this beautiful but very fine fuzzy yarn, so I'm doing a practice run to see what adjustments I might need to make with my shmancy yarn.  Also, I'm a sixe XS so I'm hoping it'll fit ok without too many alterations.  Has anyone else had to reduce this pattern?  First time knitting something other than a scarf, and on circs, and I need this done for a wedding in August, so wish me luck!

I made mine yesterday!  I read through all 58 pages of posts so I could understand how to customize this to fit me.  I got carried away in watching television as I knit, so I totally forgot to do the "k2" on each end of my purl rows -_-;; so it curls, but I was able to iron it flat.  It's not noticable so much when I tried it on.

Anyway, I knit mine up on size 10.5 circular needles & less than 1 skein of Caron Simply Soft in black.  It's held together with a dragonfly pin I've had for years.


knit side (and before ironing)


purl side (after ironing) <-- my preferred "right side"

Thanks to julsey723 for a wonderful pattern! and to loisgriffinwannabe for all the helpful posts within these pages about gauge & customizing it to fit.  This was my first big knitting project (that wasn't a scarf or anything; this thing has sleeves!!) so I wasn't quite sure if I would even knit it to fit me.  But it fits just perfectly!
