I just started about a week ago.  I only have the back and one front side done so far though (I wish I had more time to knit!).  I'm making ming a lot longer though- I'm not a huge fan of the shrug...  I think that it might turn out too small for me though...  crap.  Oh well, I can pass it on as a gift if that happens.

I love love love the pattern.  It is the whole reason I found/joined craftster.
I'm working on the original pattern right now and have the back and front(s) done.  Undecided I'm having a bit of trouble with the first sleeve though.  It's way too small for my arm!!  It fits, but skin tight with no extra fabric.  It's strange because my gauge is correct (I think) and the rest of the pieces fit fine.  So I'm starting the second sleeve, but casting on an extra ten stitches.  Maybe my yarn is less stretchy then everyone else's?  Thanks for the great pattern and I hope to have a picture to post soon!!

I just finished this, and its now my new favourite item of clothing!! I knitted it in the round following the pattern kindly provided in this thread. So thank you to the oiginal poster and also to the person who (so kindly) converted the pattern!!
I will try post pics when I get a chance.

I knitted mine in Rowanspun Aran, a red colour - not sure what its called.

Sucha  cute pattern. Thanks again!

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

OKay, first a huge thanks to rtrgrrl for posting her pattern!!  I am going to Hobby Lobby right now to find some size 8 needles and the perfect yarn to make this (It will be my first non-scarf, non-wristwarmer project...I'm excited!!)

I did have a question about the patter, as I am a fairly beginner knitter........

for the back (which will be the first piece i should knit, i assume...) it says

Continue raglan decreases as follows: Dec at each end every other RS row 10 times. (If more length is required, inc. number of repeats)

so do we decrease by 10 sts?  or decrease some number of sts for 10 times?

just a little confused by that.  this will probably take me forever to get done...it takes me 2.5 hours to knit one wrist warmer.  lol

You will decrease by a total of 10 stitches. You'll decrease one stitch at the begining and one stitch at the end of every other RS row. So two stitches per row * 10 total decreases = 20 decreased stitches. It's sounds a little harder than it is. This was my first non-accessory, too and it was SO easy. It only took me about a week to finish it and I love, Love, LOVE the FO.

GRRRR, noticed I put you decrease by 10 totalstitches first when I meant 20. Must. Proof-read. First.

So do you BO (Bind off), or K2tog (where you knit the first two or last two stitches together)?  Sorry for so many questions...I want my first clothing project to be a success!

I went to Hobby Lobby to buy my needles and yarn, and for some reason this camouflage yarn popped out at me (even though I would never usually wear camo), so hopefully it works out well!

Just thought of another question...how do you "pick up" the stitches to make the hood?  Is there a certain binding off technique that I should use to be able to do this, or should I slip everything onto stitch markers instead of binding off...?

thanks!
