ok i think knitting in the night does not help for the simplest problems.. i am working on the sleeves now and well past the ribbing.. i supposed to make 2 stitches in total in row but after new stitches, the waffle stitch pattern gets off by the new stitches.. so i feel like i am doing something wrong here.. can anyone post a picture or explain how you deal with increases... i feel really stupid now.. Roll Eyes


oh by the way  i realized i misunderstood the twisted rib concept and was doing only r1 , it is too late to correct it but it looks nice anyway Roll Eyes

ok so for the sleeve increases... here's what we have   [k] indicates increased knit stitch, imagine the chart below as a tube, where the right and left side meet like they do on your sleeve. Basically you increase at the beginning and end of a knit row, then you purl your row, and then on the next patterned row you do not just k2 p2, you line your pattern up, since you increased by one you need to purl a stitch and then k2 p2, when you get to 2 increases you will p2 and then k2 p2, and so on and on and on, after a couple of increases you'll be able to see the pattern emerging from the increases and it will all make sense

The increases form a pretty awesome V effect,..... just so I feel like I'm making progress, here is a photo of my finished sleeve & the V's along the inside:

I just read this whole thread and I'm soooo excited to make this!!! I'm also actually terrified because this would be my first garment - although I have conquered my first sock Wink

I am thinking of using the gloss in the original sage colour. Can someone describe it IRL better? teal? greenish blue? Also - I hear that people use less skeins than required in the pattern... I am going to make a 32 bust size, 1 size smaller. Should I buy 6 skeins or 7 just in case?

Input from people who are trying to tackle this as a first huge project would be awesome Smiley

first of all buy more yarn than you think you would need. waffle stitch eats so much yarn. once you finish you might return unused balls of yarn but finding the same dye-lot is not that easy most of the time.

this pattern ws my first sweater pattern i follow throughly (although i made couple of raglan tees before) and it is quite easy. just read before you start and come and seek help in here if you stuck. i especially recommend line by line instructions someone posted in here instead  of "at the same time" instructions of armholes, it was a great help.

keep in mind that waffle stitch is strechy and the pattern does not have any shaping so going one size down is a good idea. there is alot of room in this sweater. it is not designed to fit you like a second skin so chances are it will be ok.
