I might be interested in doing this for a baby. I will have to wait about a week to order the yarn and then I can start.

After looking at that one in the Completed Project, I decided to join the KAL.  I could use any solid colors I have at home.

Yep, it doesn't have to be several colors knit in a stripe. The Twisted Float shrug is made similarly with colors that are twisted around each other to give it a variegated look.

Hi!
Ive been working on this pattern and I'm a little confused.  I am at the part where you put the 18 stitches and then do a provisional cast on of 18 (for sleeves).  I just cant seem to figure it out....I can't envision why i'm doing a provisional cast on.  This is so hard to explain!!!  Ok...I'm on a brown color right now...so I've got 18 stitches of brown on my holder.  Then I did my provisional cast on with waste white yarn...is my brown yarn used at all for the provisional cast on? Or will I just have a "loose" piece of white yarn on my stitch holder?  If so, how will my live stitches from the provisional cast on be attached to the sweater?  This is so weird...I'm a fairly decent knitter but this makes no sense to me!
Any help?

I'm using this pattern as a basis to makeone for me. You need to determine what size you want to make - S, M, L - it isn't a one size fits all. It's knit in a circle and you need to know when make the armholes and how wide across you want it. Measure the top of your shoulders, then find the measurement for armhole placement that's closet. That's the size to make for the overall width. Make sure you have plenty of yarn... it sure seems to eat it! Grin

thanks so much!

so new question......does the pattern have different sizes in the actual directions, or just one size? from what i can tell, there's just how many stitches to knit but it doesn't say what size you're knitting. should i assume that's a small and then adjust accordingly? or i guess it would probably just be easier to measure what i want and then adjust how many stitches it would take to make that measurement, and not worry about what the actual size of the pattern is.

knitting is hard sometimes. Smiley i'm anxious to hear how people are working out this pattern, since i'm so clueless. i was really confused about the sleeve directions and i'm glad i'm not the only one...hope someone can answer, kellyann!  Cheesy

O Adrienne! You got me with this one. This pattern was just too cute to only print out and plan to knit eventually, I just ordered the yarn to make 2 matching sweaters for my little ladies. Smiley

I'm doing a green and purple color scheme: Silver Birch, Dried Herb, New Leaf, Oregano, Lotus Blossom, Grape, Autumn Purple.

Hopefully I'll finish up a few other things before the yarn gets here so I don't have to put it off too long.

Ignore both the stitches on the st holder and the provisionally cast on ones for now and finish up the body; there will be a `hole' in the sweater where these stitches are. Look at the instructions for the sleeve. You place the 18 stitches from the holder on your needle and pick up the provisional cast on stitches and join them. Then knit the sleeve. It all works out....

See my reply to kelliann about the sleeves. As for the sizing, I went back to the pattern, and no, there's really no different sizes, you knit until it's big enough. It starts out in the middle and goes out from there; follow the pattern for how many rows you do. Since kids mostly get taller and don't grow so much around this is how it works to fit babies through toddlers. I bought my 2 1/2 yo (who's now 27) a size 4 winter coat and he wore that for at least 2 years.
