I did this a while back and can't quite remeber how.  Think i just did original pattern.  It is a bit baggy but i love it and am definately gonna make another.  Infact may just start one tonight.  Tip:  Do much longer in length than in original pattern unless you want a crop top.  Took me about 3 weeks Smiley

I made the original pattern ages and ages ago, and it came out HUGE on me Shocked

So I gave it away on freecycle and the lady who collected it was really pleased with it (at least someone was!).

If there is an updated pattern I might be tempted to try again - anyone know which page of the thread it is on (or a link please if it is on a different site)

I've has this pattern on my to do list for a while, but I have a 42 inch bust. I don't have much got boobs, but I am wide in the rib cage and I would like to do it top down so I can try it on as I go.  I am thinking about casting it on flat, all in one piece and then joining in the round. Or there is always begging my knitwear designer friend to help me make it into a top down raglan top. (I think she is going to start charging me for her "knitting support" so things fit my top half and so I don't have to knit things flat)

I might join in on this one.  Will have to scour my stash to see if I have any acceptable yarn to use as I have been banned from buying new wool until I empty out some storage space by using what I've got.  I like the look of this sweater though.

I know I am like a year or 2 late here. But I just started this project.
I just finished the back.

how did you guys bind off the top of the back?
I did a regular, cast off bind off, and there is NO give, it just does not stretch at the neckline?
is that how its supposed to be?
I am just afraid I screwed it up. I am a realllllllly novice knitter.

Isn't the upper back ribbed? So BO in ribbing, using a larger needle.

I've been eyeing this project.  You guys did a wonderful job.  I wish I knew how to convert this to a top down pattern I hate having to put things together...ugh.  Again you guys did a wonderful job on this  Grin

I think a few people did make it top-down, have you read through the whole thread? There may be enough discussion about it that you can convert it (or maybe somebody did already, I'm not sure)

I didn't read anything on an actual pattern for knitting this in the round, but I"ll take another look through.
