Cheesy So I can't join without showing a photo right?

This is what waffle stitch looks like in huuuuuge gauge (DK weight yarn, size 6 needles)
[image]
It's yummy and squishy. I started knitting this on sunday and I'm 7 inches in Smiley My plan is to knit furiously til I reach the placket instructions, then try to figure it out from there (not planning very far ahead am I?)



Wow! That's gorgeous! I love the idea of doing it on bigger needles, since it would, at least in my pricing specs, cost me about a leg to knit this on size two needles (yarn wise)... I should try scaling it up too! Let me know how the plackets work out, please!

I have a problem!

I bound off the neckline & it's too tight! I picked up stitches according to the directions & cast off like she said - making every 6th one a k2tog, but it's all gathered up along the neckline:



One of the things I love about this sweater is the scoopy neckline. Looks like I'll have to rip this out & do it over. It actually digs into my neck when I have it on!

oh no! I've made a scoop neck before and the instructions were to k2tog along the cast off to draw the neck in but it worked out perfectly... i'm afraid of the neck band now!

neekie that is GORGEOUS!!

May I ask: what adjustment did you make for the DK weight yarn?


And for that matter:
Has anyone tried this using two strands of yarn? 

(I have some yarns in my stash I'd love to use for this, but one is too heavy, and the other....)

Thanks  Smiley
