Corset Top


Did anyone see this top on Knitty Gritty yesterday? Here is the free pattern from the DIY website, and apparently, you can buy a different version from the designer's website that has a sleeve option. She says it looks good on all sizes. (BTW, Wendy from Knit and Tonic was one of the knitster girls on this episode!)

I also would like to twenty-second the nomination for the Simple Knitted Bodice.

I would totally knit that...even though I have the fancier version OTN right now.... And I love the free patterns for our KAL's.

It looks like a simplified version of the Silk Corset Top by Annie Modesitt! Is it? I heard that Annie was also recently on Knitty Gritty, although I don't get the show out here in the sticks where I live :-(

I love this!I don't get DIY with my regular cable service (yet) but I like to check out the website regularly. Thanks for reminding me I need to get over there.

I have had the fancier pattern for a while, I'd love to knit this!

I have been loving the corset top by Annie for awhile now, but it looked so fancy it kind of scared me to think of trying to knit it.
This pattern is very cool and I could see it dressed up and dressed down.
Me likey lots!

I love this, too. I have been admiring the fancier version, but this fits just as nicely and is likely less difficult. This is a flattering cut for lots of folks!
