No, no pattern for the cami-tank.

I knit the cable panel by itself...the cable that runs up the fronts...for about the inches that would fit around the top of my bust...and then seamed it. Then, I picked up stitches along the edge, and knit in the round 'downwards' til it was about the right length...then changed to a smaller needle for the 3" ribbing, and then cast off.

Alert: I knit and re-knit this thing several times. The first attempt at the cabled band...it was waaaaay too big...had to frog back a lot of inches.

The second attempt, I picked up way too many stitches...so the st st was puckered.

The third attempt, I ended the bottom wrong. I ended with 2 inches of garter stitch. It looked horrid, and it was rippley.

The 4th attempt, I ended the top TOO SHORT. Had to undo the cast off and knit over, and more inches.

The 5th attempt, I decided to do ribbing...but I increased a lot for the ribbing so that it would curve out over my hips. That design idea took several attempts. How many should I increase? Where should I do the increases?

Ack!

Anyway, I never worked so long and so hard at such a simple looking tank top!

But, I really really really needed something to wear under this cardigan. I mean, a white blouse? Ack.

I was motivated to keep at it!

Yeahhhhhh! My skirts arrived today...and one of them will work perfectly with BORGHILD! It is a long boot length skirt...a lighter chocolate brown, fine-wale corduroy! WhooooHoooo!

I ordered the same corduroy skirt in a med denim blue...and that skirt will go perfect with a NORO Silk Garden cardigan called BETTNA. It is an oldie but goodie. My favorite NORO cardigan BTW.

So I am set for that weekend event! Sigh of relief.

I also ordered a boot-length chenille skirt (with fringe on the bottom edge) in chocolate, (not the right shade for BORGHILD), beige-tan, and black

I was boot-length-skirt-deprived up til today.

Hi Jenifer!

BORGHILD is in Elsebeth Lavold's Designers Choice Book Nine called "The Second Viking Knits Collection".

HERE is a link to Elsebeth's website. You can see all the other patterns in that book as well.

I couldn't find it for sale on AMAZON, and I did a quick search of EBAY for you...couldn't find it...but I know that is must be available on many yarn online websites that carry her yarn.

WAIT! I FOUND IT! I FOUND IT!
At YarnMarket! CLICK HERE for only $17.95!
