Oh wait, you were talking to snowflake. Cheesy  I crack myself up way too easily. . .Sorry. . .

ANYHOO, that is a great tube top you knit up there, snowflake.  I love the design.  Great detail!  What type of yarn did you use?  Oh, and are you willing to share the pattern at all because I love it.

wow...  this is amazing.  I can see the photo now!   thanks to all of you for your help!

Hey Daria, here's the pattern for my blouse:

 I casted on 62 sts using Magnum Mist.  Needle size is i think 4.5mm.

Rib 6 rows
Start pattern (My pattern is abt 40 rows (excluding ribbing))
Row 9: Decrease 1 st at each end (of every 4th row, ie. 9th, 13, 17, 21st)
Row 13: Decrease 1 st at each end
Row: 17: Decrease 1 st at each end
Row 21: Decrease 1 st at each end
**  I decrease 4 times, of cos u can decrease more or less, depending on yr waist size or how big u start with.
Then i change to stocking sts as the holes are quite big and i don't wan pple to see my BRA!
Row 1: Increase 1 st at each end of every 4th row.  (ie. 1st, 5th, 9th, 13th...  depending on how big is yr boobs)
Row 5: Increase 1 st at each end
Row 9: Increase 1 st at each end
Row 13: Increase 1 st at each end
Row 13-34: stocking sts
Rib for 4 rows using smaller needles

Back is abt the same, except that I only increase sts 2 times at the boob part. 

**  This is done according to my size.  u need to measure constantly to make sure that it's to your guage.  Your might want it to be longer before you decrease for waist.  Or you have a longer body to do before u increase yr boob area.

**  I don't have the bobble pattern with me now.  Will type it out and post asap.

Awsome! This is great--nice and feminine. You did a great job. These tube tops are a great way to use up  yarn, since they don't take as much a sweater.

I just adore it!
I'm making a tube top myself, but I think I should have increased more sts in the boob area.. Are you busty? (lol) I might do one more similar to yours.. I just don't know to do the bobbles, but i'll make something up Wink
Thanks for sharing!

Hey, and you know what?  I'm very petite and it only took me 2 days to finish this bouse!  Talking about achievement...  Isn't that satisfying enough?

Hi Carina, i'm sure u'll need to increase loads more sts at the bust area!  I'll go back this weekend to write out the pattern for you.  The bobbles part is troublesome, but you should look forward to the end result, i'm sure you wouldn't regret!
