I'm pretty sure that I remember doing 6 decreases over 12 rows. I actually charted out the scoop neck shaping before I started cause I wanted it to be going from a shallower curve to very steep to straight up...Gosh I'm so sorry there have been so many problems interpreting my instructions! I guess I was a lot more vague than I thought.

Indieknitter, don't worry or apologize! I've never even written a pattern from scratch before myself so I imagine it's not easy, especially for a sweater with unusual shaping like Mrs. Darcy.

Just consider us your test-knitters for minor tweaking purposes Wink  (I'm pretty excited about leaving work in a couple of hours to go home and work on mine!  Smiley)

OK, here's a WIP pic of my front pieces... with button holes on the wrong side and a slightly less dramatic neckline... ha ha.  I would say the color in the photo is pretty true to the actual color of the yarn.  (This is my cat's favorite color!)



Indieknitter - this pattern totally rules and I'm more than happy to be a guinea pig to test it out Smiley

Thank you! Peps, what yarn are you using? Is it working out well for you?

Thanks all - the yarn is Paton's Classic Merino; I would say it's on the lighter side of worsted so my fabric is a little airy on the size 9 needles, but I don't mind it.

(Also, that fugly brown and blue pillow at the top of the frame is my next project... I'm going to knit a cover for it.)

Progress update: one sleeve down and one to go!  But I sort of don't want to finish the second sleeve because then I'm on to finishing, which I loathe.

I made this over Easter on holiday at my sister-in-law's in Somerset. I so love you indieknitter for sharing this with us. Thanks a million. I love it, it's the first piece of knitting in a long time that I've seen through from start to finish without being distracted by a more interesting project  Embarrassed
I added 6 rows to the twisted rib on the sleeve as I was born with long orang utan type arms  Undecided and when I make another one (as indeed I shall) I'll make the armholes more generous, it's a little tight up there. Sorry for the lousy image, the wool is a gentle lilac colour, I used 6 balls of Cygnet Wool Rich Aran. It washes really well on a machine wash wool cycle too! Here's the action shot, and a close-up of the buttons, I love the classic look of these, I got them from a wool shop in Wells, Somerset.

80schick, your lilac sweater looks fab! I really hope mine turns out half as well. . . .  The buttons are very a la Darcy  Smiley  Thanks for the inspiration to keep knitting.
