Thanks for the tutorial, especially the estimates on how many yards of sequins you'll need.  Thanks to you, I now have a costume for a very select Halloween party!

ooooH!  nice!

I've never used Craftster picture hosting before, so I hope the pictures will appear. Here is my honey (still unblocked, need I say ?):


There are some minor problems, especially with the lace part: the sleeves are weird (as you can see) and the neckline sort of holds apart at the back. I think it's because linen + cotton is so much stiffer than silk. But all in all I'm pleased with the outcome, I think. It is a beautiful pattern anyway.

What a gorgeous color!  Looks fantastic!  Grin

almndladybug, thanks for that! i researched for so long to buy this yarn...and reviews were mixed. but i was really drawn to the yarn, the idea of having wool and silk, and the color! (hollyberry)

i picked the same yarn + color!  i haven't gotten a chance to start working on it, but i think it will look great in hollyberry.. Smiley

i haven't made the bag yet, but i sat at work yesterday trying to figure out the same thing!  (this is for the first shorter bag)

for the increases from 88 sts to 220sts, i think i'm going to do
round: [(kf/b 2 times), m1]* rep around.
(that is, knit 1 front+back two times, make 1).

doesn't that increase by 4 stitches for each 1 stitch, instead of 2.5?  my theory was to *kfb,kfbf, rep from * across, reasoning that if i double the number of stitches by kfb in every stitch, that's 176, plus increasing an additional stitch on one-half of the total stitches (44) for a grand total of 220 all around.

it basically turns 2 stitches into 5 stitches (or 2.5 sts for each stitch).  knit into the back and front of 1 stitch (2 times), then make one.  however, the m1 part means that there are tiny holes in the bag (which i hadn't thought of, until i did it all... oops), but these can easily be stitched closed, OR if you're lining the bag, it doesn't make much of a difference (they're not noticeable, just.. for functionality, it isn't practical to have holes in the bottom of a bag.)

hm, perhaps it was my short hand that was confusing.. probably should have been written [(kf/b) 2times, m1] rep around.

also, remember that you're working the chart in the round!
Ahh!  Now you've scared me, any secret in-the-round decrypting advice you can give?

just that when working the charts flat starting on the RS, you generally start at the bottom right and go across to the left for the first row, then work back from left to right for the WS rows.  but since this is worked in the round, all the rows in the chart are RS rows, so work all the chart rows from the same direction (instead of back + forth).  Smiley

For everyone who was wanting the pattern but didn't want to buy the Rowan magazine, it is now also available in Jennie Atkinson's book Romantic Style: Knits and Crochet to Wear or Display, as seen on the cover.  (You can view inside pages on this knitpicks link to see some of what else the book has to offer.)

However, it only has the dress version..
I'm under the impression that the magazine also has a camisole version..?
Are there major differences, or is it just a shortened version?

I'd like to make both!  Grin
