It Fits!



The Facts: LBT in smallest size, 5 lace repeats, an extra couple inches in stockinette, armhole finishing is a row of single crochet and then a row of backward (crab stitch) crochet, no finishing around the neck. I used about 2.5 balls of SWTC bamboo.

Overall, I really liked this pattern (once I made a chart for the lace). My only real trouble was with the short-rows... did one side correctly and one incorrectly (with resulting holes), as I wasn't sure what I was going for... anyhow, fixed it up and it looks fine.

Finally, I love the fit and will definitely wear it a lot. Also, I really appreciate all the support and encouragement from the kal... thanks to you all I can wear my LBT this summer!

it's cute!! you did a really nice job! i'm about to start the shortrows and i'm a little intimidated. *lol* i've never done them before.

Thanks -- the pattern isn't too clear but I believe the idea is to twist the stitches so as to not create holes... I had them on one side so had to do a bit of sewing to close them up... oh well, who looks at the back shoulders anyhow?
