kabili,

Thanks that helps a lot. If my number of stitches isn't a multiple of 5 that's ok right? I just have to make it kind of even? Or I could do less increases. Hmmm.

if you want the poofy sleeves, go ahead and do all the increases in the pattern. yes, just make it kinda even. for example, k3 then increase, knit 4 then increase, knit 3 then increase, etc.

i think i'm stuck on the easiest part of the pattern...  Huh

on rows 2 and 3 where you make the increases, i'm doing a yarn over increase, but the way it's coming out, i now have 9 sections instead of the 5 that i started out with. maybe this is only the case because of the type of increase i'm using, but i have a feeling i've screwed up somewhere. after row 2 and 3, where is the increase supposed to happen?

sorry if that didn't make any sense. i'm really confused.  Undecided

Maybe a stupid question... can't believe I'm asking this. I feel like a beginner right now haha... How do you do the increases? as in I looked at the instructions, but I don't get how you do it.

Roe - I used oh-so-cheap and oh-so-soft Caron Simply Soft. I think my gauge was way off, because I had to make quite a few alterations.. But ya know.. "all's well that ends well"

Livi

I just cast on and knit the eight rows, before it occured to me: check yo' gauge foo'!

What kind of alterations did you make? I'm using the same yarn!

Other people: Lionbrand Jiffy knits up at: 14.5sts + 18 rows = 10cm with 10s.  Close enough? Ha ha.

I REALLY want to make this, and can't afford to go out and buy any yarn ;____;

I'm way too poor to buy yarn, so I have to make do with what I have.

I double stranded the Simply Soft (after trying it on every needle size in a fit of desperation), on 9s, 10s, 10.5s..

and on 10.5s, I got really excited, but then recounted - 14 sts by 18 rows in a 10cm square  Cry

If I go to 8s, the rows will.. increase? but.. hm.. I'm so terribly confusled.

Does anyone know how I can convert this? I want to cry.
