if so many of you are getting gauge according to the pattern and are ending up with sweathers that could swath a volkswagon bus, i would recommend trying to contact norah gaughn directly.  she may be a better bet as far as figuring out what is going so horribly wrong. it may be something as simple as the # stated in the gauge being a typo!

its to bad -- i think it was the cutest pattern in the whole mag!

Miss_Vicki - Borders has it out already, and my local agent just got it (Sydney) so should be in Brisvegas soon Wink
Thanks Dair, I just got one.  My newsagent says she just got them this morning.  She had set one aside for me too, how cool is that?   Kiss

I heart Hank McCoy

luvee - that's really strange that it also looks better upside down for you!!!

This project is not inspiring much confidence at all Sad( It's also not helped because we dont know what the side/back of the original VK one looks like!

yeah was thinking the same thing - for all we know it was clipped in the back to look decent
so sad - you guys have done such beautiful work for it to end up so very massive

I just sent VK a message through their website.  I invited begged them to visit this thread and see what has been going on and to offer some words of advise or encouragement.  So we'll see.....

question to those who've finished their crapecho: i'm working the neckband now...about how long did you make yours? (how many patt reps?)

i seamed the sleeves and tried it on and i think it's possible that it might work...but i did end up with a section of the pentagon that seems to stick out from under the sleeves on each side. this is hard to describe. i took some pics and will post them later so you can see what i'm talking about.

this is definitely the most brilliant and yet most mystifying piece construction-wise i've ever made. i'm glad VK did the pentagon tutorial online. but i suggest they should go one step further and do a finishing tutorial. it's not too late to do something like this.

i have to say, i am also mystified by VK's silence in all this. you'd think they'd at least say they're aware of the confusion and are doing something to address it. this is a great opportunity for them to show they're in touch with their audience--not just through the magazine, but online as well.
