i've gotten a couple of pm's on this top, maybe because it's now on the featured summer projects thread (!that frightens me!), so i thought i should make this caveat for those who are trying the top out: i tried this thing on on waste thread at least five times while i was knitting it.  i know we all hate the waste thread, but this top is so tight, and so dependent on following your own curves and yet feeling comfortable enough to wear, that you really should do that if you're going to give it a try.  i stopped every few inches to decide how many increases/decreases i needed to do in the following inches.

yes, a tremendous pain in the butt.

and yet, the extra hour of knitting time for putting it on the waste thread and then putting it back on the needles afterwards insures that it fits, which saves you hours of frogging and reknitting time.  right?  right.

right!

It's coming along--short rows definitely needed but since it was the first time I did them, I did them 6 times before they didn't totally suck... and even now, I'm not perfectly happy (I could never get the pick up wrap thing right so I decided to do Japanese short rows)

I am having to make other modifications too, and major help from a friend at Knitty... but I am hoping it looks ok when I finish.  And when I lose 20 lbs.  Wink

Thanks for the pattern, I'll post my try when I finish!www.mahana.com/blogs/yarns

Here's my version:



It's a combination of several patterns: the general idea and dropped stitch neck from this Ribbon Tee, the doubled cotton fleece from Loop-d-loop's Ballet Tee and the shaping from MagKnits Picovoli.

Note to self: Top down short sleeve raglans are so quick and versatile! Must make more.

I knit mine with Schonemaker's toy (I'm too damn tired to make sure that's what it really is... I think it's fake German... but it's almost 1am so forgive me).  I wound up knitting on 9's, I think (or maybe 10's, I need to check)  I added short rows with the wonderful help of knitty's trillian42, and I started the bust increases a bit lower, and I didn't bind off cap sleeves, instead I put them on waste yarn and went back later and knit down 11 rows, and I added single and double crochet to the edges of sleeves, neckline, and bottom.  Oh, and I increased after the waist (and knit it a bit longer)  If I can manage some free time I'll write up what I did if anyone is interested.  Right now I'm off to my simple knitted bodice!  Yay, silk!

I had some black cotton yarn in my stash I needed to use up.  And I really liked this pattern, so here's mine.  My gauge was totally different (thus the pattern had to be altered) and I elongated the middle section for boobage.  I'm happy with the result but wish I had checked gauge before I started.  I just kept putting it on waste yarn and trying it on so it worked out.
