i was really inspired by this lace pattern, but the sleeveless, strapless nature of the original pretty much ensured i wouldn't wear a true "Lelah." so here is my version, which is a Lelah/Bad Penny (from knitty) combination:

a close-up of the lace (notice the fishtails point in the opposite direction because bad penny is a top-down raglan):

and modeled my moi:

this was a fun project; thanks for the pattern, HelenaJane!

Here is my first attempt. I just made the large and added a few extra rows of lace pattern.

and with the shrug I made from some of the leftover.

Here's my addition to the flock. I used Cotton Ease in Blueberry and I sort of made the large size, although I did an extra repeat of the lace pattern (for a total of 10 repeats). Hey, when a girl is 6'1", she's gotta make sure tops are long enough. I also had to adjust the bust measurements, slightly. I used size 9 needles for the lace and 7s on top.

This is a really fantastic pattern. I'll probably be making another before long.

I finished mine forever ago, but am just now getting pictures. I have no idea why they are sideways. I rotated them and then saved them and they still loaded to photobucket sideways. Hmm. I'll edit this if I can figure it out, but for now here's my sideways lelah.
I love it. Thanks for the pattern.

Ok, so I know this thread has been quiet for a really long time, but I recently changed my original Lelah and started a second one.
When Lelah met tubey.

when I first saw this pattern I was so excited to get going I just grabbed the closest thing in my stash. Well the top turned out cute, but I used wool ease. Uh, duh. If it's warm enough to wear a tube top, it's too warm to wear a wool blend. If it's cool enough to wear a wool blend it's far too cold for a tube top. So I started knitting a shrug to go with it. Then I realized the construction of tubey from knitty is basically a tube top and a shrug sewn together. That was all the inspiration I needed. (yeah, yeah there are some ends left to be woven in.)

And here we have the start of Lelah #2 done in a sensible cotton yarn. Far more appropriate for summer.

So I made a sort-of Lelah since I loved the pattern but my boobs don't handle strapless well  Smiley I used the pattern for the Lotus Blossum tank (from the summer issue of IK) for the top and did the bottom with the Lelah lace.  Here it is:

eeks - another lelah -

there is a little bit of childish insolence in my piece here - in the summer my sometimes-critical grandma rained out my free-yarn-from-auntie parade by saying the yarn didn't look good enough to make much with. anyways, after being upset and sulky for a few hundred kms, i finally decided i would make something fab with it: my first knitted wearable. i am happy to be part of this wild group of knitters wearing lelahs. is lelah the gateway drug to the knitted garment world? i hope so.

here she is blocking and basking in the fall sun:

and here she is on, ready to party!

I did go to a party with her that night - I was a little proud. I regret underestimating my chest but it is mighty sexy (sorry grandma!)

Hey there! I made this sweater after drooling over yours on this thread. I used some hand dyed wool from www.woolsoup.com and the size medium pattern. I didn't put in the ribbon yet, but I think I definitely will.

Hey there,

Here is my addition to Lelah:

I was running out of town and needed something to work on - I saw Illanna working on this same pattern and I wanted to get in on the fun!  I really wanted one out of cotton because I live in AZ and it's darn hot here - but I didn't have time to run to a proper yarn store.... So I ran to a local craft store chain and picked up 6 balls of Sugar and Cream Cotton in a lovely colorway....

I knitted the lace pattern part and then because I don't have any boobs I needed to put a top and straps on it - so I used the general direction (making some of it up as I went along) from the Chick Kami pattern to do the top, complete with i-cords for the straps.  There are eyelets so I can put a ribbon if I want to - however I am not 100% sure if I am going to do that.

It blocked really nicely, however it's a bit big - no worries as I am sure it will come in hand if I ever decide to get preggers!

I don't recommend this yarn for clothing because after one wash it looked like it had been washed 20 times - but it was great to try the pattern with!

Thank for the pattern I can't wait to do others in different yarn!

:-) Alison

oh oki thanks Cheesy and finally i finished it! @[email protected]

karabella margrite (had to use it up and only had 3 balls of it) in size 6 and 7 circs :B

the only thing i would like to change was the ribbon. i'm kind of lazy and didn't like tying the ribbon so i'm going to find another ribbon in a contrasting color that's got some elasticity.   Smiley

This is all i've done so far... havent really had time to work on it properly.

The colour isnt that bright usually, that would be my flash making it look like that.

Erm it isnt great quality due to it being acrylic... I wanted to try it out with acrylic first. But I'm really loving it.
