You're such an amazingly talented knitter, you'll be fine! 

And you'll feel like a real genius when it "clicks."

HelenaJane, i'm sure you'll be fine. Just make sure to fit the boobholder early on, so that you get an idea of how many rows you'll have to go before joining front and back, and I'm sure your boobholder will turn out perfectly.

Okay so far so good! I've made it SANS problemo's but I just had to come and check to see if I was supposed to continue with the raglan increases after I put the sleeves aside, It looks like a no, right? Please note it is 12:40 am, I'll be done tonight! I love knitting this! It's so much fun! For some wonky reason, i actually have understood the pattern so far!! I was petrified of this thing!
I am soo glad that this thread is already here in case I need some more checking!!
Did anyone ever hear back from the designer?
I saw guessica's boobholder on her blog! Whoo!

This is not the most intuitive sweater in the world.  Once you figure it out, it is really clever. I suspect everyone who knit it was scratching their heads at first.

glad it's not just me. i've read all the threads and just about to try it for myself.

I've just started a boobholder too - grey mohair yarn that knits up at a slightly smaller gauge.  I just knit a few more increase rows before separating the sleeves (I think I knit 44 rows rather than 36).  I'm also thinking about lengthening it too, maybe with some increases and decrease at the waist to make it more fitted.

I'll post some progress pictures when I get some new batteries in my camera.

Well, I'm nearly finished. I'm not sure about the edging, it's a little too big (I couldn't get the correct gauge, 9's weren't enough and 10's were 2 st too many) Here it is so far, it's too big on the ribcage on mine as well.


Oh and I ran out of yarn so I had to leave the sleeves shorter and with one less row of decreasing, which I am going to crochet an inch and then do more edging.... after I sew them and then it's on to the tedious business of weaving in all the loose ends and blocking Tongue

Question: Just out of curiosity, did anyone else do the edging and if you left it out, why? I think I kind of liked this better before the edging, but maybe if I used smaller needles?? (I'm using 4's now)
I am going to make this again for sure, I loved knitting it up! It's a great pattern. I rarely make anything from the top down either, so it's cool to do something incorporating that. Next time I will use 9's!

Hey!!!!  That looks great!

With all due respect to Ms. Glampyre, I think her choice of trim was not the best.  There are zillions of edging patterns that don't produce so many loose ends of yarn.  For me, that trim would not be fun to knit.

I also found that changing to smaller needles for the garter stitch edging helped the way the pattern sat.  Garter is wider horizontally than stockinette, and my edging was flipping up unti I ripped it out and used smaller needles.

Here's the trim I used:

WHOAHHHHHHH!!!! Your's came out SOOOOOOOO NEAT!!! I love it!!!! Especially the lace on the sleeves!!!!!!! WOW!
NOW you tell me about the garter! I totally missed that post, I don't know how!
I'm definately doing another one and will add some of your revisions for sure!!!
God, you are such a great knitter! (God as in oh my god, although from the fo's you have put up, you re a god-ess....of knitting!
note: I actually haven't minded the trim knitting-wise, but I used a mercerized cotton for the trim and it just looks MESSY, totally wrong choice, but it's what I had laying around.

You are nuts! I'm nowhere near your level!

Notes on pattern:
When you get to the (34 rows) total part, that IS from the begining.
You will always be increasing before and after all the markers untill you get to the seperate sleeves from the body part.
If you are going to do the edges, I used a circular needle, picked up ALL the stitches around back, sides and neck and then joined it, I later put the stitches on holders and switched to straights per 7 st, because it was getting crazy annoying having the circ points keep interfering.
