Yahoo! Finished Chickami!



This was a very easy knit. It took longer than it should have because I had a few "non-knitting" evenings thrown in there. Actually more than a few.

Notes, etc....

Pattern: Chickami by Chicknits - wide strap, shaped version
Yarn: Vanilla Cotton-ease - less than 2 1/2 skeins
Size: 38" bust, but it has a lot of ease in this yarn
Needles: Sizes 6 & 3 Addi turbos

This was so easy and fun, that I do think I will make more of these. A nice tank sweater is a good staple for here. I have a bunch of random skeins of cotton-ease, blueberry, pistachio, etc. so I think a striped version would be adorable. Definitely a pattern that was worth the money!

Adorable! I have been planning on making a chickami to go under my Sitcom Chic cardigan which is in popsicle blue. I like your idea of making a striped chickami. I have two skeins of vanilla - vanilla and popsicle blue would look good!

Your tank turned out really nice!
I'm thinking I should start one and I'll have it for next summer!
Won't be needing it here by the time I'd finish it!
Does it come in a smaller size?
