I'm finished, done, finito...woo hoo! Crazy, party of one? That's me right here. LOL
~ I, like Rosann, didn't work the front split pieces at the same time with 2 balls of yarn...I did one side to completion and then did the other.
~ I used size 6 and 4 needles to get the gauge correct. I did switch to flexible needles after the stitches were separated into front and back since my cord was bugging me.
~ For now I'm using white ribbon (remember the bra post??) and I noticed that the bra is not the center of attention. I'm thinking I can change out the ribbon if I want a different look.
~ The yarn is Elann's Sonata. This is basically just a mercerized cotton. I think it worked great. If you want more sheen though, use Tahki Cotton Classic as this one is a little matte. Also, I had an extra skein left over.
~ I made it a few inches longer after I knit the ribbing, just as a personal preference.
Once I choose some beads I'll post another pic. Good Luck to everyone else!
