Well I finally made a boob holder from Stefanie Japel's site, and I liked the pattern so much that I decided to get her Fitted Knits book!









If I were to make it again, (which I might, since it took up less than one skein of Cascade 220) I would be careful to do a looser cast on, and I'd also put a few decreases in the sides over the last 3 inches at the bottom. 

This is one of the few things that I've ever made where I'm happy with the fit!

Whoa, this is awesome!! I adore it all: the fit, the sleeves, the color, the button. Fabulous. I would love to make one. I'll take your suggestions into consideration, too.  Wink

Man!  Less than 1 skein of Cascade 220??  That's a steal!  Great work.

The sleeves look a little bat-wingy, are they actually like that? Maybe the fabric is softer than it looks in the pics.

Very nice work!  Now I want to make one!

I've really wanted to make one of these for a while now but I never did because I'm well busty. I just took another look at the pattern and saw she has a link for help for us busty girls. Yay! I'm so making this now!

Very nice! It looks great on you, I thought about making one of these but I wasn't sure how it would look since I'm not huge in the boobage area.

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

Thanks everyone! 

The pattern can be found here:

I think it's a great pattern for not being huge boob-wise, but she's also got the link for specific modifications in the case that you are huge boobed.  Being of the former category, I was really happy with the fit and didn't have to make any extra changes to the pattern as far as sizing went.

You know, the sleeves are a little bat wing-ish!  That was actually another kind of mistake in alteration I made, I went ahead and did the increases to get the puffy sleeve, but then I shortened the sleeves by a couple of inches in order to make a cap sleeve.  When I stand with my arms down, the sleeves stick out especially.  Otherwise, they stick out a bit, but just the same as any cap sleeve in that kind of weight yarn.  But if I'd skipped the increases to make the puffyness, I think they'd certainly be less stickyouty.
