Simple Knitted Bodice

Arrr! I be a busty sea wench just in time fer Talk Like A Pirate Day. Simple Knitted Bodice Simple Knitted Bodice Back Pattern: Simple Knitted Bodice from Stitch Diva Yarn: Berroco Denim Silk in Cayenne 12 hanks plus about 1 foot of a 13th to finish binding off the neck. Doesn't that just bite? Good thing I had an extra hank. I made the Medium size, and could have gone down to the small because of my yarn sub, but I like it nice and roomy. This is definitely one of those comfy sweaters to wear just about anywhere. Modifications: Simple Knitted Bodice Neck Detail I opted for symmetry and only did 10 rows instead of 15 of the purl bump pattern on the neck line. Simple Knitted Bodice I did 20 rows straight after picking up the sleeve stitches before starting the lace panel so that it'd line up with the lace panel on the body.
