I've been totally slowing down on my Arisaig progress, and thought I might pick up a different project for this weekend (as if taxes weren't a big enough project). I have a friend I still owe a christmas present to, and wanted to knit her a new "sexy top".
I love the lace and the A-line on Lelah
, but I was thinking of making the top part a strappy top with a front that crosses over the cleavage area. (What do you call those? Wrap top?) More specifically, I was thinking of switching to knitting that part flat, picking up a few stitches on the WS for the part that will cross over, and decreasing on each side to make the crossed shape.
How do i do this? Is this crazy? Unlike me and my superboobage that can't be contained, my friend is not really busty (at all) and will that style of top look terrible? Will it be one of those things that when i finish, i will say "hm. seemed like a good idea at the time..."
Also...yarn?? Lopi lite doesn't seem too happy for a top you wear across the skin, but then again, i haven't made myself a top yet. I'm still stalling on finishing Arisaig.
Any thoughts would be "wunderbar". Thanks.
