Minisweater (a.k.a. Boobholder)
Pattern: Minisweater (aka Boobholder), free from Glampyre
Yarn: Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Worsted, Spruce and Tahiti Teal, 1 skein each
Needles: US 9 24" circulars
Recipient: yours trooly
Notes: What an entertaining pattern! I'll definitely wear this once spring rolls 'round. I modified the pattern a little to reduce the poofiness of the shoulders, doing a little less than 1/2 the increases on the sleeve. If you would like to make the same modifications, you needn't be too precise, just do about half what the pattern recommends.
I don't yet have a proper fastener - a yarn needle sufficed for the photos but I imagine a button at some point.
Here's the full (in a manner of speaking) frontal shot:

Like a Madwoman
I just made that too! i really like the stripes, it looks good on you.
Hi, very nice. Quite funky colors too! No doubt u'll be getting quite a few complimentary looks come spring...:)
How gorgeous are you?! I think a button would be cute (but the yarn needle, if it doesn't poke you, seems appropriate) or a tie, like maybe one of the long, wraparound ties? It would be so cute in long or three-quarter sleeves too.
Ok, this is surely C's favorite. Yowza!
Very nice job as always, Jess. My boobs are jealous.
Ok, I am in L-O-V-E with this boobholder/sweater! I must make one. Was it hard? I am a newb and haven't knitted any sort of a sweater yet. What do you think?
wow, love the strips. perfect fit. i may have to give that pattern another go.
I'm so jealous. It looks good on ya! Dang it...all I can knit are scarves.
It's adorable! I love it with the lime green...
aw, you guys are embarassing me ;) thanks!
the secret, according to several craftster posters, is to try the sweater on a lot starting about midway through the pattern. the sizing varies a lot, i think, by body type, so you have to be a little flexible. it's annoying, but you'll be glad you did.
lauren - i think a tie would look awesome - hadn't thought of that! i'm somewhat tie-impaired though when it comes to wraparounds; i'm always fidgeting with them. buttons are so much less exciting, though.
as for whether this is a good pattern for beginners, i am of the opinion that beginning knitters can figure most things out, even if a lot of swearing is involved. but if you're not similarly adventurous, maybe start with a tank or tube-top first - something without sleeves and with a bit less "eyeballing" involved in the shaping.
That looks great! Stripes were an excellent idea.
Yup, might have to be makin' me a second one, I think.
It looks great- I only wish that I had boobs that needed to be held, and I would make one too!
You definitely give Lolly Lauren a run for her money for best hair in knitblog land!
Ooooooh! I love it! Those are really cute colors too. It even looks like it could be a really cute pull over for layering if you contined it down to the waist... hmm... Something to think about!
so sassy - i love it! and it fits perfect, super-well-done ;)
too freakin' cute! I am green with envy! (oh, and the sweater's awesome too!) lol ;o) Great fit, and cool funky colors. Can't go wrong with that combo!!
I agree with everyone on the great colors that you used. It's nice and spring-y!
I love it... I might have to add this to my "to do" list! Great pattern for spring!
