Okay if you read back a few pages I'm sure you'll discover a big discussion on this. And I'm not at all sure if I was doing it right but this is my take on it:

K1, *K2tog, Yo, *all the way to the end, ending with K1. which means the last stitches you should be doing  are K2tog, yo, K1. Don't forget to do the last Yo before you knit the last stitch. this should make it so you end with 22 sts.

but I would definitely ask somebody with more experience, I think I ended up confusing someone even more.

good luck,
Roe

Has anyone knit the "child placket neck sweater" ?  It calls for 24 inch circulars, and is knit in the round, but the finished sweater will only be 20 inches around total.  Is it me, or does it seem to make more sense to use shorter circs? I had such a hard time casting on for this sweater that I ended up making the bigger sizes.  In hindsight, maybe I should do a provisional caston or something to get the smallest size??

i did the 6-12 mos size on 29"(cause i didnt have and 24") and i had no problems. it might be easier to do it on a shorter lengh... it doesnt seem like it would hurt. those denise interchangleables seem to be good for that.

oh yeah... and i knit the first eight rows just back and forth with out joining then just went back and sewed it later. i do that alot when knitting in the round. it helps me from letting it get twisted also its alot more elastic when youve knit for a few rows rather than joining right after casting on. dos that make sense?

That's a good idea about knitting in rows before joining.  I often find that as much as I enjoy using circulars for knitting, I hate that first row for the join.

I'd really like the Hourglass sweater to be my next project and I'm looking at yarn on ebay...does anyone have the guage and the yds required?  Is it something in worsted weight. Thanks for the help!

Hi starlee.. I'm nearly done with my hourglass sweater ~ just a few rows left! 

Anyhow, I'm using yarn from elann.com.  Your gauge should be 19 sts per 4" on size 7 needles.  (my gauge is about 20 sts per 4", but it's not a problem)
