I knit the sheath in the latest Vogue Knitting magazine and thought I would post it. It was a really fun project:

I can't tell what yarn you used? Is it self striping, or did you do all those little stripes?

Many thanks for the wonderful comments.

The yarn I used was Cascade Fixation, which is an elastic yarn. The colors are khaki, pink, yellow and olive. The pattern is all done in a woven stitch to mimic sort of a tweed. I did have to change color all the time, I believe every 2 rows for each of the colors. It was a slip stitch, so every other stitch was slipped behind the khaki color. It give it very much a tweed appearance. I started out cutting the yarn at a color change, but found it worked better to carry all the yarns, as the side are sewn, so any floaters are hidden.

Thanks again for the comments. I'm proud of it!

Neat-o! Another project on my to-do list! Though I was thinking of just making it as a top which should be easy enough to do. It looks like you did a terrific job! :cheering: :cheering:

awwww, everyone is so kind. Many thanks. I lost almost 20 pounds to wear that dress. I wore it to my son's rehearsal dinner and got lots of compliments.

Andrea, it was 7 balls of the taupe and 2 each of the other colors, which is a total of 13 balls. So the dress cost me less than $60 to make, which I don't think I could have bought a dress like that for under that amount.

Once again, thanks for the generous compliments!
