I am looking for something like Knitty's Blackberry but in a longer length. Anyone have any ideas? Here is a link to knitty:


No bobbles or cables necessary, the closure would preferably be just above the belly button and the bottom hem would be near the hips with circular . I am doing searches through my back issues of VK and Interweave and all my knitting books and haven't found anything.

Any input appreciated. Thanks millions!

(I'm about to do something that is generally a pet peeve of mine)
This cardi from Drops is a similar idea/overall look to Blackberry, except that it's lace, and it's an entirely different type of construction, and it's longer...  (that being the pet peeve part:  It's the same but it's totally different)

I had planned to try this one but have never gotten around to it.  It's kind of interesting in the way it's knit as a big circle and the sleeves grow out of it. 

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

Well, it's a bit like the circular shrug but w/ long sleeves.

Here's the super long thread here about it - http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=45597.100

And the knitalong here - http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=58497.0

A few people have done long sleeves and it looks similar.  Smiley

Thanks for the input, they are both super cute...I might just have to make them both!

the sweetpea knits blog has a nice cardi pattern too.  I think it's called "Olive"
