if you place the marker where it says to and do the increases, you're not actually increasing your button band...you're adding stitches beside it...try it for a couple of rows and you'll see what i mean...the button band doesn't move, but additional stitches appear to the side of the button band...

That's what I did, I knew it would move away from the button band...just seemed weird.

I somehow managed to finish this sweater recently, and though it is kind of big, it's very comfortable and looks nice enough that it's not worth it to frog it, and I'm much too lazy to unravel & re-knit anyway. I hope to have pics to post next week!

I just took mine off the needles and onto scrap to test it tonight and it fits like a GLOVE right now, I am so happy. That never happens! I'm 5 buttons in, just under my rack and about to do some shaping. I am so in love. This Panache is SOOOOOO great on the skin.

I just realized I never posted my FO!!




My big advice for this sweater...don't use heavy metal buttons! My buttons (as awesome as they are) weight the sweater down big time.

It's a shame Knit Pick discontinued this yarn because it's sooooo soft.

I'm not sure if anyone is still reading this or not, but I thought that I would throw this question out there.  Did anyone use Bernat Satin?  I am interested in making this sweater in this yarn and was wondering how many skeins that you used.  I read through this whole post and noticed that someone used the guage of 15sts per 4", and this yarn will give me the same on 6mm circs.  I am just wondering how many skeins I should buy when I go out tomorrow night to get it.  With the yarn that the designer used, she only used 495 yards, that would be just over 3 skeins of Satin.  Ok, enough rambling! haha I hope someone can help, I'm so excited to make my first sweater!!!!

I have to get around to posting mine too. I'm not that happy with it, it's kinda saggy and it stretched alot after wearing it a few times. That's what you get for using cheap yarn I guess. I used patons shetland chunky. Undecided

I used not cheap yarn and mine is the same way. I think for anyone into knitting this, the best advice to heed is this: Make it smaller than you think you should.

Has anyone tried a seed stitch version? I really like this sweater http://www.berroco.com/276.281/281/281_crotona_pv.html
They look almost identical.
