Hehe. That's exactly what I'm planning to do with this pattern.

Cougar, I think one of those two might be just what I'm looking for. Thanks for the suggestions!

And all I can find online are patterns for 3-d roses. I need something - lace? - that's knit flat and looks like a rose so I can combine it with a rose-stem pattern. Any thoughts?

Actually, I've been doing all the decreases down the sides under the arms, decreasing 1 or 2 stitches on each side every few rows. I was thinking that might make them less obvious than having them every so many stitches throughout the body of the sweater, but if I'm-a have to rip back to get the back to fit right anyway, I might try spacing them throughout the rounds and see if that makes a difference. Hrm...back to my knitting math, I guess.

(And I know my screen name is very long; feel free to call me cheeky.)

I started by breaking down the stitches just like the woolworks formula said to, and knit about 3 or 4 inches after the point where I cast on the remaining front stitches and joined. When I tried it on, the increases were in just the right place in the back, but were actually running along the tops of my shoulders for the  front. So, I ripped out and took some stitches from the left and right front and made them part of the shoulders so I'd actually be able to get my arms through it. At the point it's at in that picture, which was just after I separated the sleeves and joined the body, it fit perfectly. I just knit even, no short row shaping or increases for the bust, but when I figured out how much I needed to decrease after the bust so it would still be a little fitted when it got to my waist, I realized I'd have a few more inches in the back than in the front. I decreased more frequently for the back than the front, but it doesn't seem like it was quite frequently enough, 'cause it still seems a little baggy to me. This is my first sweater, though, so I don't really know the rules. Can the rate you decrease affect how bunchy the fit is? I have to try it on again tonight and see for sure how it's doing.

Thank you!

It's about down to my waist right now, and I think I have too many stitches for the back. The front is fitted like I wanted but the back seems a little baggy. I might have to rip back and decrease a little more just in the back. Or keep going and call it a learning experience. Haven't decided.

I've got one!



(And look how proud I am!)

I'm figuring it out as I go, using mostly the woolworks formula. It's Patons Classic Merino in New Denim on U. S. size 8 needles and so far I love it more than just about anything else I own.

I think you'll want to k2, bring the yarn to the front between the needles (like you're going to purl), then over the right-hand needle to the back of the work, so now you have an extra loop on your needle. Then, since the next stitch is a purl, you'd bring the yarn to the front between the two needles again.

Actually, it looks like I can't make it. Dan woke up really sick in the middle of the night and I'm gonna need to hang around here for taking-care-of purposes. You guys have fun - and post alpaca pictures if you get any!
