These are knit in the round on circular needles, but I totally used DPNs.  Don't stress too much about the thumbhole instructions, it'll make more sense when you get to that point.  Also, don't forget to look at the errata page because there is a mistake in the pattern (www.purlsoho.com, and there is a link at the bottom for "book corrections").  Though I made mine per the original pattern and they're more or less fine.  Good luck!

The Rustic Scarf:


Yarn: 1 skein each black & gray Lamb's Pride Bulky (note how much of the black is left).
Needles: Size 11 Addi Turbo circs (unknown length, maybe 30"?)
Started: 10/24 PM (mostly cast on and 1 or 2 rows)
Finished: 10/26 PM

Notes: I didn't follow the pattern exactly. I cast on the requisite number, but followed my own color changes. I did 9 rows black, 10 rows gray, 9 rows black (to keep the color change stripes on the same side, I had to do an even number of the center color, but I like the result). If I did it again, I'd reduce the first and last sections, because that was just too close for comfort, and the finishing was a little stressful.

Do any of you ladies know offhand if I could use this yarn for the hourglass sweater? I think it would work.

I just added the first sleeve to the body in order to free up the needles for the second sleeve.  Was I really supposed to leave stiches on stitch holders?  When do I close the armpit?  It just doesn't seem right.

The armpit closing for the sweater is the very last step. You will see that when you read ahead. You attach them with a kitchener stitch.

I read ahead before I posted.  Apparently not well enough. 

Thank you!  I feel like I can proceed happily now.  I'd been worried all day.

I made these with a cashmere blend I had left over from another project. I also made them longer then the pattern specified. They are so darn warm and so darn cozy! I work on the computer a lot and am constantly cold, with these, I can keep my hands warm and not have to wear gloves.

The Noro Cash Iroha is a heavy worsted weight yarn, but you could use Ambrosia, I myself am using a DK weight yarn for this pattern, however the fabric you create will be really "breezy."

Unless you are good with the math and can recalculate the pattern to work with the gauge you come up with using the thinner yarn.  Smiley
