I just frogged what I've done of the "Pia" tank top from the most recent Rowan magazine.  It's the cute little tank with the D-ring closures at the straps.  I'm making it in the suggested yarn, Rowan All Seasons Cotton.  I frogged it because it was looking kinda crappy - there are 8 rows of yarn overs in the pattern and on one side you do a P2tog before the YO and on the other side you do P2tog tbl ("through back loop") - which was a new stitch for me.  I'm doing it correctly but it looks puffy and weird - not flat and smooth like the P2tog side.  

Has anyone made or tried to make this sweater?  Would love to see pics or hear about your experiences if you have.  Or does anyone know any lil' tricks for doing P2tog tbl?

Hi, I was surfing the Magknits.com site and found this site of one of the designers.  She made the same top  - just click on "finished 2004" and she has a link to some pics of the top.  Looks like you could contact her for some help as she is a avid knitter.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the link - I appreciate it!  Damn, that girl is way more productive than me.  Her tank looks perfect, so now I'm glad that I frogged mine and will start over.

Cheers!
