aw yours looks GREAT fraugee, i'm so glad someone was able to follow my pattern!
it looks like you put ribbing around the front, though, and omitted the trim? maybe that is why the neckline is a little loose.

Yeah your pattern was easy to follow!  And yes...I omitted the trim.  Couldn't find the rowan stuff you suggested and I couldn't find anything else I really liked enough to use as a trim, so I just used the same yarn.  You wrote it like that to guard against the bagginess of the front and the stretching of the straps, right?  As I'm looking at it right now (I wore it to work today and it's still on) I'm thinking if I found something I liked, I could pick up stitches around the edges and go to town...do you think that would work alright?

Nice work, Fraugee!  I'm still waiting for my yarn to arrive!!!  Undecided

Good job Fraugee! I started this about a week ago and as soon as I started the lace pattern I realized something was wrong because it wasn't working for me... So I think I didnt' cast on the right amount even though I *swear* I checked it a million times. So I'm going to have to go back and frog the whole thing.  Embarrassed

Would it be possible to knit this in 2x2 ribbing instead of 3x1? Like, it would still come out looking okay, or is the cast-on number wrong for that?

that'd be fine since they're both multiples of 4.

i just have to say, this pattern is great. I'm making one now, and becasue of friends who have seen the lace pattern I've been comissioned for like 4 birthdays!  this is a great pattern and you know it's downright easy- peasy if i haven't screwed up yet. *knock wood* i'm using caron's simply soft brights in some rather hot pink color, and it's going pretty well... pictures soon, i should be done bythe middle of next week... not much free time lately... but yes, ranting aside... thanks for the pattern!

Finished! This is a sorta lame pic but you get the idea...

I used Sirdar Snuggly 4 ply for the body, the trim, and the straps. I knit the straps the same length as called for in the pattern even though I knit them with the stretchier yarn and I added in one pattern repeat to fit a 36" bust. I love it - it's hot!

 Grin I am SO making this! I'm starting tonight, but using a different yarn (stash busting here!) and have to make a larger size so there will be some number crunching involved. This'll be my first "clothing item", everything up till this point has been files under the accessory and/or toy catagory. I'm so excited!
