Sizzle

Sizzle

Knit and Tonic's Sizzle pattern
http://knitandtonic.typepad.com/knitandtonic/2006/07/sizzle.html

Yarn: SouthWest Trading Company's PHOENIX Soy silk yarn in Really Read
Needles: Knit Picks Options Size 7
Size Large 43.5" bustline
Modifications: Added an extra bust increase row, knit neckline back and forth in seed stitch for the key hole effect, didnt bother with the seed stitch edging around the armholes, and added an inch to the body before splitting for the neck to make the V neck a little more modest.

Notes: Phoenix yarn drapes beautifully but is splitty as hell. Wouldn't knit with this yarn again.
