Gracefully Gathered Halter Top and Boy Shorts




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.

    I love it. What kind of shaping is that on the back of the shorts, in the last picture?

    Oh, indeed, those shorts are… short. I agree with adding a little bit more height! I love the color and the shaping of the cami! Another nice FO of yours!

    Princess – Short rows gone horribly awry. I figure since they’re pj’s and the only person who is going to see it is hubby… I didn’t bother to go back and fix. I only noticed it AFTER I was putting the two legs together.

    Thank you ladies!

    Oh boy! You look too hot in it. No need to add the height if the only person who is going to see is Hubby!!!
