the was supposed to be the ballerina wrap from rebecca, but it was too bulky so i chopped off the wrap parts and made it into this-

the pic of the back is bad, but i couldn't see what i was doing. Wink

and i also made these as a gift for my friend (aka Vmoney)

Cute shirt! I love the neckline, it also looks really light and airy. Awesome job!

That shirt is neat! I like it chunky like that.

Thanks so much everyone! Smiley

it's about 28 (that will be your length) stitches on 15mm needles with 9 bound off for armholes (i think for 6 or 7 rows). i wish i could give a pattern, but this was massive trial and error. i just kept trying it on. so start from the middle of your back (k1 p1 rib the whole time), make an armhole, then keep going until it stretches across your chest, then make another armhole, then keep going until you're halfway across your back again. or try it backwards, that's easier. Wink. then sew it up and i ruched it a bit by pulling the seam tight. i used cheap (but washable) Red Heart Baby Clouds. i think it was only abut 2 skeins. A lot of it was leftovers from a scarf and hat i had already made. but anything bulky should do. i want to see yours if you do it! Smiley

i think i will make another one someday soon- if i do i will write stuff down as i go along.

The top is very funky looking. Very pretty. I have thought about doing writ warmers, but haven't had the guts. Yours are so cool. I like the sequins.

My alarm clock still holds a grudge from the time I threw it at the wall
