Gracefully Gathered Halter Top and Boy Shorts
Pattern Source: Knitting Lingerie Style – Joan McGowan-Michael
Yarn: Berroco Pure Merino, 5 balls.
Needles: 10 1/2 US, 9 US – Knit Pick Options Circular
Gauge: 3.5 stitches per/inch
Size: 32 Halter/32 Shorts
Modifications: In order to obtain gauge I had to go up a size for both the smaller and larger needles. I also added at least an inch of length in the waist. The boy shorts are extremely low so I plan to pick up stitches along the top and add more height and also accommodate a bow tie closure as opposed to the elastic.
Thoughts: I love it! My husband took one look at the shorts and said “OMG… where are you planning on wearing those?!” I had to explain to him they were pj’s, in which he replied “OH thank god.” Poor guy almost had a heart attack.
