Ribbing? I don't need no Stinkin' Ribbing!
Don't get me wrong, the original pattern is fabulous, but me being the adventurous Leo that I am, had to go and change it up. Yesterday I left you in suspense as to what my changes would be to the bottom. In a marathon knitting session, I managed to finish the bottom off last night, then woke up early this morning to finish off the ribbing on the sleeves. I was 10 minutes late for work. It was worth it. (No, I'm not sprouting wings, stupid bra) Yarn: Cotton Fleece in "Nymph" about 2 1/2 Skeins Size: The 36" Mods: Ok, so I added in some waist shaping about 3 inches after the patterned shaping. 3 repeats of K1FB before and after the arm markers and 2 rounds plain stockinette between each. Then 3 inches before where I wanted it to end, I started the lace pattern again. The first 2 times I repeated the first round of lace, I did do the increases. If I could rewind time, I wouldn't do this, it didn't really need it, but it's all good. I repeated the lace pattern 6 times as for the top. Me likee.
