Wow! That is really cute. What yarn did you use?

I think either way is fine. I've read that you should seam from the cuff to the armpit so you don't have to fudge to even out the stitches at the cuff (which may look sloppy). But doing it this way can get a little tricky at the armpit if you've already seamed the sides. I think this is why some people say to seam from the armpit to the cuff. I've done it both ways, and I don't think it makes any difference.

Wow! They are both so lovely. Thank you for sharing the patterns!
15  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Lambs Pride bulky acrylic (or superwash) substitution? on: December 30, 2005 06:37:16 AM
I've seen people on this board substitute both Lion Jiffy and Wool-Ease Chunky to make this sweater. You should also check on Elann for chunky superwash wools. Right now they have Debbie Bliss Merino Chunky which they have listed as machine washable. It's a bit pricey though.
Or what about Paton's Shetland Chunky? I've never used that, but they have it on Joanns.com, and I bet you could get gague with it. They have lots of colors too.

My brown is not microspun either. I think it's Katia Diana. There is a microspun "mocha" that I looked at, but it's a very light peachy-tan. I don't know why they call it that.

Thanks you guys!  Wink

I really liked the microspun. It was the only bright colored sport weight I could find at Michael's. I was a bit nervous about it b/c I've read so many posts about it being "splitty" and a pain to work with. I didn't think that at all. I loved knitting with it.

Here is the Emperor Penguin:



I made him out of Lion Brand Microspun. He's a Christmas gift for my nephew- I gave him a list of all the animals in the book, and he picked a penguin. It was a very fun knit!

If you are tiny, girl from auntie has a free pattern for a cowl neck sweater that looks just like that one. It's only in one size - 34" finished.

Yes! Picking up dropped stitches is not a big deal- although it used to really make me nervous. I also use a crochet hook. See "fixing mistakes" on http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/basic_techniques/misc.php
