Thanks Rion.  I wanna plan the yarn for it, and then buy the pattern as soon as my current wip's dwindle a little bit.

hi green gablers!

did anyone notice there is no waist shaping in this pattern?

The picture is really deceiving - the tee appears to hug the model's waist!

does anyone plan to experiment with shaping? i think i might...but my size 6 needles are tied up currently, so i can't start this yet!

I feel so dumb, but when it says to continue in st sts I know it means stockinette. But am I purling all of them as started or are they all knitted? Like I said, I feel lame. Tongue Roll Eyes

If you're working in the round, you knit every round (or purl every one - depends which side is the outside of the piece). If you're working flat, you knit one row and purl the next - repeat. Wink

Mine's done  Cheesy



It's true that there's no waist shaping. i did my own measurements and adjust everything to my gauge. just thread waste yarn and try on as often as possible. I did about 8 rounds of decreases. as for joining after purling one row, i think it doesn't matter whether u join first or purl first. i did the join before purling and everything looks fine to me.

I really like the idea of a slightly finer knit that I'd get with the Shine Sport but not sure how much I'd have to adjust the pattern - surely it can be that difficult.

You could knit a larger size than you normally would. Figure out how many stitches per inch with the SS and your needles, then how big around you need it for you. Multiply your inches times your stitches/inch and check the pattern for the size that's closest. If the pattern says do x number of rows in some places, then do it for however many inches that translates to. Knitting by tape measure is actually pretty easy.

Hey everybody,

I am starting to regret my choice of alpaca yarn for this project...and I haven't even got the yarn in the mail yet!

What say you? Do you guys think that cotton is better than wool for this project as far as shape and drape?? I am so lost...

Yours turned out really great.  I have this pattern, hopefully I'll get to it before month's end.
