I am working on the boobholder (http://http://www.glampyreknits.com/). It seems pretty easy, and I know I should just trust the pattern, but I don't understand!

On row 15 it says "increase 5 stitches evenly over both sleeve sections". What sleeve sections?! Up untill this point I have a long rectangle!:oo:

Later it says "seperate sleeves from the body".

THEN There are seperate sleeve instructions lower on the page...:think:

This is just a boobholder! Why is this so hard for me?!:shrug:

Please, oh, knitting gurus...help me!:ick:

Here's (http://glampyreknits.tripod.com/glampyrephotos/id62.html) the link.

It's actually quite cute!

It should be more of a /----\ shape than a rectangle if you're at this point. You have markers marking off the fronts, sleeves and back, don't you?

I see... it is a garmet for B-Cup girls. We D-cups would look damn silly in such a thing!

The increases she's asking about are the ones that make the sleeves puffy. But yes, Glampyre sized it generously for those who need it.

I see no one answered you Ginny. If you haven't gone to the site, it's other name is a Mini Sweater. Short sleeved cardigan that buttons --- under the boobs....

:P I have to disagree....I've seen this pattern look extremely cute on some plus sized gals, and my DH thinks my 36DD boobs look pretty damn cute in the boobholder I knit :D Here's a pic of me trying mine on after finishing it last year http://anjaknits.blogspot.com/2006/06/i-finished-my-boobholder.html

that looks adorable on you!

i made a tiny version of this that fits my 5yo dd. i used baby weight yarn in the needle size suggested on the yarn band. i left it without the trim too and didn't put a button on. since dd HAS no boobies ;) i just use the ends to tie together in a knot. looks adorable over halters and tops with skinny straps.
