I really want to make this. I need to go through the stash and see if I have something that will work.

i realllllllyyyy want to make this.  i've never done a sweater before but i think i might be able to do this one.  the only thing is that i don't want to use wool yarn, or i'd settle for as little wool as possible.  i'm going to my LYS today to see what i can find.

as if i wasn't in the middle of two other knitting projects right now... thanks a lot!

I have been looking at this all day. I'm really not sure I can justify starting it as I have one "taken 2 years and will probably take 2 more" cardigan on the go and I've just bought the wool for another sweater. It is however almost too beautiful and wearable to pass. Any ideas for yarn subtitutes (pref not too expensive) that I can get in Europe?

this sweater is gorgeous.
I'm doing my first ever sweater now (the 3hr sweater that i also found out about over here in craftster knitalongs ;P), so when i've finsished (....its taking considerably longer than 3 hours) i think i will probably give this one a try Smiley

I think i'd probably do ribbing from below the bust-ish to the bottom, giving it a high-waisted look. And i'd follow you, craftykt, with 3/4 length sleeves ;P Basically, I'd be looking for something like this sort of shaping, which i'm completely in love with!:

I'd also be interested to hear about possible yarn subs available in Europe  Kiss

I really like the KP Palette I have, and I have heard that Essential is great as well. The colors might be a little off... I know I ordered Palette in a purple color, and it was darker than I'd expected, but still a gorgeous color. I don't know about pilling. But, the yarn is pretty soft (to me, at least), and it certainly does have more colors than Gloss.

Awesome! I am normally not very picky about scratchness of sweaters, and this pattern seems to minimize the scratchy possiblities anyway. I think I am going to go with the Palette, but I will definitely take a look at the Essential.

I am definentally knitting this. I had been looking for a pattern for a big lot of fingering weight yarn that I have coming in from ebay. I had almost given up and was prepared to have to design something my self, and then bam! knitty surprise saves the day. I'm just itching to start, but I have to wait for my yarn to arrive, and I'm going to try and finish up some little projects that I have lieing around as well. So exciting!

I love this! I'm probably going to make it, but I just spent an arm & leg at Knit Picks last week, so it needs to be awhile before I give them any more money!!!
