Woohoo! I’m so happy with my first FO for me of 2008. The yarn, Seduction, was a gift and a perfect match for the Vixen Cami, which I had been dying to make since I got the book back in December. I love this, in fact I wore it to work on Friday under a cardigan and got a lot of compliments on it.
Modifications – a lot! since the Seduciton is a little heavier than the Yarntini the pattern calls for an I can be a tight knitter I used size 6 needles for the body. I wanted to use Leticia for the top since it matches but it was way too bulky. After my first attempt I ripped back to the first knit row where I had dropped the stitches. I decreased by 12 evenly all the way around. Then did the 2×2 ribbing on size 10 needles. I only did an inch because I didn’t want it to be too heavy. This is a perfect example of making a pattern and yarn work for you.
