It's design number 4, but I did it in lana d'oro instead of the fuzzy yarn they used.

I absolutely love it--I was searching for a nearly identical pattern for a nice silk/cotton blend I just bought from elann. Is the magazine still available?

It should be - my best friend just bought it like 2 weeks ago.  It has a ton of poncho patterns in it and some cute and some ugly sweaters.  Some REALLY ugly, has to be seen to be believed ugly things  (check out the white thing in the 'california' section, unbelievable).

are you rtalking about that weird two peice pattern that kinda looks like a diaper mixed with a hammock, mixed with one of those sanitary belt thingys from back in the day?  I honestly don't know what some people see in some of those wacky patterns.  But on the contrary, you picked a tres cute one melidomi  Smiley.  I also think the Michael Kors sweaters in that issue were pretty nice.

 Huh Huh Huh  ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can't knit that fast! It drives me crazy, these magazines, ya know? Can they please publish fall styles in the spring or summer so by the time I finish the damn piece it'll still be hot and hip?

That's a great sweater, by the way. Cute. How long did it take?

It knit up pretty fast.  It's done on size 9s I think.  (5.5mm)  It would probably take longer if you used the suggested novelty yarn, but I used a worsted weight smooth yarn, so it was a lot easier to knit.  I think I started mine around mid August - and I did a couple of other projects at the same time (like this shawl and a baby sweater I'm working on now) but I'm a pretty obsessive/fast knitter.  I knit every day for at least a couple of hours while the boy plays video games or we watch tv.  So your mileage (stitchage?) may vary.

Anyway, it was a fast, easy knit, and quite enjoyable - and the first piece I've done with a crocheted border (alllllll around the edge).  It has a difficultly level of 2 (beginner) in the Vogue magazine, so if you can cast on, cast off, knit, purl, increase, and decrease, it's easy as pie!

Melidomi, do you remember about how many skeins of Lana d'Oro you used? I bought some several months ago but have decided against the original project for it. I'm looking around for new ideas... thanks!
