Here's my progress picture

I love seeing it taking shape but I'm also concerned about the size. My pentagons are the right size but it seems to be able to stretch more. I'm really hoping it wouldn't be too big.

I have about 4 pentagons done on mine, but then had to put it aside to make the earflap hat my daughter had asked for for Christmas and the mittens to go with it. Those are almost done, so I'll be able to get back to the sweater soon.

Listening to all of you I started getting worried about the size. Here's my plan if it comes out too big: Find someone the right size who likes it to give it to. My stepdaughter is a size (or 2) bigger than me and she likes the picture on the magazine, so if it's too big for me I'm giving it to her. She has already started asking me how I'm doing on "her" sweater. Way better than ripping it out.

Well, I started on the second row of pentagons, hoping they will pull it back into shape.  I hope so!  I've spent so much time on it when I should have been doing school work. *sigh*  If it is too big, I don't know who to give it to.

I wondered about making this longer, too.  I made a couple of shrugs last year, and never really wore them.  I guess part of the trick to cropped things is having a nice flat belly and some tight tank tops to show off under the knitting.  However, since I am currently enlarging due to the growth of my beloved fetus, something cute and short might be interesting... if it doesn't just look entirely ridiculous.  I think I might try this with the thinking that I can at least size it for my shoulders...

Can length be added as an afterthought?  I read VK's editorial on-line tutorial, and it sounded like you'd just add another row of pentagrams.  For those of you who are ahead on this thing, does that sound easy?

I'm also intrigued by the idea of picking up and doing ribbing around the bottom for 6 or 8 inches... hmmm....

I'll keep watching a while....

I hope it fits! But if it does turn out too big, and you have no one to give it to, perhaps you could find a charity auction, and contact Norah to ask if you could donate it to sell there. I bet one of these would sell for a lot at something like that!

I agree! I've thought about this too--to lengthen it and make it look like the sleeves do. I'm having trouble picturing which parts of which pentagons make up the bottom edge, though (was thinking about planning it ahead to see how feasible it would be, but it might be best to just jump in and do it)

I don't have the magazine, but looking at the online picture again, the sweater looks HUGE on the model as well. I actually originally noticed this, but just assumed it was because she is TINY, and the sweater was probably knit for a larger size. Now I'm not so sure... maybe it's supposed to be so big. What do y'all think?

cnp71201 : I saw that too, but i also figured it was because she was TINY... But the smallest size is a 33 I think which is also the one i'm knitting but i'm hoping that it wont be too big!
