Vedrana from Berocco. Not a free pattern but still pretty nifty.

A more fashionable alternative to "knucks" type wrist ornamentation.

Zaftig from knitty is a dancers Brustenhalter (German for "bra", literally translates into breast-holder) dream come true!

Iris from Knitty.com could be converted into a dancier version, especially for those who are petite in the bust line.

I've always wanted to find something like this to wear for practice in warm weather for occasions where I didn't necessarily want to go showing my belly. (Ever been kind of intimidated showing up to class or a workshop as an average girl when all of your Amazonian fellow classmates are fully made-up and are showing so much belly you don't even have to wonder if they're wearing undies under their Melodias? That's why I don't always want to show the belly. I love the belly, I just..don't want to be one of those sorts. Not that I run the risk of qualifying as "Amazonian").

Anyway, this is the perfect pattern. And judging from the photo it can accommodate those who are amply bosomed. I see things like this in hip little hippy shops but they are a) always crocheted, which is fine, but expensive and b) NEVER EVER LINED! When it comes to crochet....you must line!! Knitting something like this probably should require lining as well, but doesn't have to I suppose. If you're a seamstress like me you won't have any problems hand-stitching a stretchy material into the cups for modesty.

Found this pattern a while back and thought it would be great for dance costumes! Funky yet still elegant! I'm thinking of starting up a pair of these for my next costume in progress.

Simple Yarn Corsages for adorning hair, belts etc. From MagKnits. Honestly, kind of ugly. I bet someone out there can do better using the same basis.

Chance From MagKnits. In other words, fuzzy wrist-warmer type "knucks". Very cool looking if you ask me. I've seen a few tribal ladies with faux fingerless gloves on during performances. Such as in this video.

I just found This in the Knitty archives. Two tops, one halter and one bikini. The bikini would be especially cute if beads were added to the border.
