I was inspired by this beautiful knit: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=88165.0
and this cool cable: http://www.twosheep.com/helix/

to create THIS (my own design)!



Here's me acting all cute in it:



I did actual math while writing the pattern, and it fits perfectly -- waist shaping and all. I couldn't be more proud.

The pattern is on my blog!

Please email or PM me if you have any questions or problems. It's my first real attempt at a pattern with sizing, so don't hesitate to point out any issues.

Gawjus.  You should really consider submitting the pattern to one of the online mags.

Wow, that really turned out awesome!  I'm usually not too fond of sleeveless sweaters or the like, but your top is stunning.  The DNA cable makes it better.
