huh? i lost my post...still looking for a yarn substitute


i'm making wendy's somewhat cowl and was thinking of using allhemp 3 in chocolate but on her assessment of the yarn it will not be as body hugging so i'm still searching for a cotton i like in brown. any suggestions? i wish i had thought of this sooner but knitpixie (who sells the allhemp) features a pattern for it, "lacey little top", that seems like the reverse of orangina...stockinette on the top and lacey stuff at the bottom and NOT body hugging. no see through tops and no poofs. check out the pattern. looks like a perfect substitute for those of use who want to be able to cover up a multitude of stuffs and still have a sexy spring top. it would be easy enough to make this one longer too. i'm going to try it in the beautiful allhemp 3 augergine and do the somewhat cowl in??? so many patterns so little time.

That's so pretty! Reminds me of one that someone on craftster did for the knitting olympics - it was the top of picovoli and the bottom of lelah.

You should nominate it for the next kal!

This is a great top! Here is the pattern: http://www.kpixie.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=804

I've seen a similar pattern on knitty.com knit with mohair.

Would love to make it!
