Here are two.

http://www.patonsyarns.com/patternbook.php?PBS=500815%20&PHPSESSID=b3bc09e05794142cd351b8ae0c97ffca This is not a free pattern, it's in a booklet you purchase from Paton's.

I remember seeing one when I was watching Knitty Gritty. I think it was double knit. :thinking:

Ohhh... I found it! :thumbsup:

thanks everybody... I decided to make the tube top (jiffy). I'm changing the yarn from Lion Jiffy to Blue Sky Alpaca - cotton... I hope it works with this yarn substitue...

OMG! Kemp - I didn't see this one!!!!

I like the one you are making better... I think I'm changing my mind and making yours..... hope you don't mind


have you started yours yet?


07-12-2005, 02:01 PM
No, of course I don't mind! I can't help it if you have great taste too :) :roflhard: :roflhard:

It is pretty cool, isn't it? Very versitile with the shrug too!

OMG that is gorgous! I wonder if I can work up the will... :??

I am sure you can!!! Maybe it should be a KAL?

I am sure you can!!! Maybe it should be a KAL? That is a good idea... though I am still working on my Summer KAL... and it is a backless tank :roflhard: Maybe by next summer I'll get it done :roflhard: along with my i-cord

Well a backless tank will do you no good in the winter anyway!
Tube and shrug will though ;)

wow, that's pretty kemp. Are you making it for yourself, or someone else?

07-12-2005, 07:30 PM
If she's making it for herself, I hope she's not gonna model it....I got jealous the last time. I have no cleavage. :verysad:

07-12-2005, 08:47 PM
omg, yeah, I forgot that kemp was.... blessed... in that area :shock:

:roflhard: :roflhard: :shock:

I thought I could hear my chest ringing last night!

I think I am going to make it for my sister first, but she would also be a good model in that area!

Guess I'll have to try to find a new model for my finished stuff :(
