View Full Version : Allysa Halter

06-14-2006, 06:07 PM
:D I've finished another installment in my Knitting World Cup (http://yarn-monkey.blogspot.com/2006/05/knitting-world-cup-announced.html) "Summer Ensemble" for my granddaughter, Allysa. I had been working on the Short Snort tank for her, but ran out of yarn after attaching the ring, the additional yarn is on the way!
So, I began another after seeing Katja (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEspring06/PATTkatja.html) on Knitty...well, it's too small for Allysa, so I altered it quite a bit; I used the cup patterns, but altered the rest. The alteration directions can be found on my blog (http://whimsicalknitting.blogspot.com/).

Oh, I used 1 skein of Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece and size 7 addis.
Here we have...the Allysa Halter

That is fab-o-rama! Is it a free pattern? Did you make it up?

:D Carmen, I used some of a pattern on knitty and made up the rest, it's on my blog (http://whimsicalknitting.blogspot.com/2006/06/free-interweave-knits-and-completion.html) and if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask :D
