I made my Rusted Root too small!!! I was up till the ribbing part before I realise this. I should have tried it once I start knitting the body but I was confident it will fit. Sigh...

I will probably restart this in Spring/Summer.

Is anyone still working on this top?  I just bought yarn for it yesterday and will start soon.  I'd love it if the knitalong were still going.  I'm going to be using Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in "candy apple", a lovely deep red.

Also, I read through the whole thread and didn't find much discussion about this - but I'm wondering if anyone knit the neckline ribbing directly onto the top?  I'm thinking about starting with the three rows of K2 P1 ribbing and then changing needle sizes and starting with row 1.  I don't see any reason not to do this - and I hate picking up stitches, so I'd like to avoid doing that if possible.  Any thoughts on this?

I was wondering the same thing about the neckline. I wonder if there is a reason why that wouldn't work?

I have the yarn for this, I'm using Tahki Cotton Classic in a deep plum color, but I've yet to start. I'm a little afraid of lace, I hate to have to pay attention when I knit! LOL!

I, too, have yarn for this... but I don't yet have the pattern, so I may end up using my Cotton-Ease for a pattern I already have. I haven't yet decided whether it would be flattering on me. I was thinking of using the heart lace from the tank top in the newest Knit.1 instead of the lace if I do make this one.

Perhaps the neckline has something to do with the size of the circular needles?  Or maybe it looks neater that way?  I'm not sure, but I will say that Rusted Root was my first experience picking up stitches, and I really didn't think it was bad at all.  This is a great pattern, I hope you give it a try!

i just finished my rusted root and now it's blocking!  pictures soon.

i also found the picking up of the stitches to be a lot easier than previous experiences.  but i'm also sure that it probably wouldn't make much of a difference if you did it your way, either.

well, I started RR the other night and knit the three rows of K2 P1 ribbing directly onto the neckline, using the smaller size needles.  So far I think it looks fine - but we'll see when it gets big enough for me to try on.  I'm 24 rows into the pattern and I'm enjoying it - particularly the way the sleeves are looking all cute and puffy.  Can't wait to get to the decreases, though - I've no idea how many stitches are in a row, but it's a lot!

Here's a progress pic of my Rusted Root:



I was surprised at how quickly I got through the yoke and sleeves.  Now that I'm on the body, it goes so much faster.  I'm hoping to have this done before the end of the month.

As you can see, I started with the ribbing at the neckline - no problems there as far as I can tell.
