Megaknits.. that sounds like a plan.. and how cute will that be...big sister and little sister in matching sweaters!!!..

I will be making the children's (baby) version...as i live in Florida I really don't think i will be making the adult version in the near future.. but all are welcome to KAL share your progress.. thanks for your advice and knowledge on the adult version soozeq..(nice to have someone who has been working on it to help with questions) I hope u will all post your progress and pictures..we luv pictures!!!

hahahaha....i want it for myself! Smiley i guess i can still apply what you said though. and.......i could make one for a friend of mine's baby, just to get the hang of it, and then make one for me!

thanks so much Smiley

For the adult size, follow the pattern; it says make it until it's large enough. One way to figure it outwhere you're at is to lay it out so half of it is more or less flattened out. Then measure from the center to the edge and double the inches. You'd want it at least large enough to meet in front, with maybe a little overlap. So probably whatever your bust measures plus 2-4 inches.

Thanks so much for the responses!  I did finally get it figured out last night at about midnight!!  I get obsessive sometimes ...I'm sure no one here can relate to that  Wink

I'm nearly done with the body and will hopefully start the sleeves this weekend.  I'll post pics when I am done!

thanks, sue! now that i read that, i realize it was pretty self-explanatory in the first place! i need a pocket-sized version of you for all my idiotic knitting quandries. Cheesy

...as i live in Florida I really don't think i will be making the adult version in the near future..

i live in florida, too! unfortunately, i'm a native sensitive to any temperature that dips below a comfy 78 degrees.....so summertime is just as bad as "winter", with everyone's a/cs blasting me into an ice cube! Wink

oh, i hope i can get started on one version or the other soon. i'm anxious to see any sort of progress on anyone's variation! all these colors sound (and look) so appealing!

I've been making progress!!!.. this is a very addicting sweater to knit.. the circular design is a nice change from a standard sweater.. makes it fun to knit..
well.. I posted my progress on my blog.. with pictures.. I also changed my color set up.. starting with the darkest colors first and working out to the lightest..

That looks really nice.  I'm going to need your help when I start mine and get to the provisional cast on.  Question: did you reverse the colors on the sweater?  I love it.

Yes.. i reversed the colors starting with the darkest color in the center working out to the lightest color which will be along the outer edge.. Right now I'm on my last color with 8 more rows to go and one more increase... then I can start on my sleeves

on my blog there is a link to the provisional cast on.. see if that helps.. (^_^)

here is my progress so far...this sweater actually knits up really fast because its small...as u get towards the outer  bands of colors it goes just a little bit slower.. I'm working on the edging now with very little yarn left of the last color... i posted some pictures of the edging on my blog...the directions sounded  a bit confusing when i read them the first time.. but i started knitting it any way ..following the directions step by step and then it made sense..
