Hi y'all

I have searched everwhere for this pattern, and I can't find it, so I could make it up... but I have no idea how to start! I want to make it all in one piece top down, because I hate seaming... but how does one do such a wide neckline top down? I don't care so much about the decorative holes at the stomach area, i will probably use another type of lace pattern... but the top part is making my brain hurt! Anyone have any help/ideas for this project? Thanks in advance!

sounds like you like the square neck line...also one of my favorites... they have something like it in this issue of knitty  www.knitty.com  look for the pattern called "Tubey" , maybe if you read through the pattern it will give you a better idea of how to achieve that look?

If you started at the top, you could knit kind of a "U" shape- the sleeve/strap parts first (2 pieces) and then join for the top back, and then you could use those live stitches for half of the body and make a circular tube for the body. The only seaming would be those 2 "legs" of the "U" to the front of the tube.
I hope that makes sense, I really wish I could draw on here...

Sorry I already looked at this and because of the "tubes" its not really alterable in the way I want... and I also don't want 3x1 ribbing, which changes it quite a  bit... thanks for the suggestion tho!  Cheesy

Keep them coming folks!

Hmm. Maybe you could knit the top of the back and the shoulder straps as one piece (back and forth), then cast on stitches across the neckline and under the arms (and pick up stitches either at the ends of the shoulder straps or across the back, depending on which direction you knit it) and do it in the round from the neckline down...

It works in my head, anyway! Cheesy

Michelle, that makes sense to me too! I am going to try it... but how would you cast on more stitches? I know there are a few methods, which would be the least messy and look nicest.... since this to be the neckline. I used one last year in a baby cardigan pattern, and it turned out kind of ugly, but it didn't matter too much since it was a baby sweater  Tongue But i would like this to look nice!

Thanks for everyones help, If you have any more ideas, I would love to hear them!

Emms,

The CO method I use when I need to do so, say, at the end of a row, is the cable cast on. I'm still trying to figure out the best way to keep from getting a bit of a hole at the beginning (maybe cast on an extra stitch and k2tog where the two stitches pull apart?), but otherwise it looks very neat. If you've never used it, knittinghelp.com has a video. Smiley

Do you have to make it from the top? If you knit the tube part for the body you could just pick up stitches for the strappy part.
