Thanks dalynn1997 you saved us a headache.

Kappatit, I switched between the first two pearl st and the 2nd two pearl st to keep it as even as possible.

Here's another progress pic


Kappatit if my instructions for the decrease aren't clear let me know I'll try to create a mock up with mspaint.

After reworking this pattern, I realized that the error was me and how I interpreted the directions. I did discover an alternate way to do this that looks the same. Sorry!

I'll definitely be following this with interest!  I plan on making this, but probably won't get to it for awhile.

I'm looking into yarn subs, and I think I may like to try this with linen yarn (I've never knitted with linen and I have to admit that I'm curious).

I'm also thinking about modifying the pattern.  I am very narrow up top (32" bust), and the smallest size sounds a little big to me.

Can't wait to see some finished tops!

Hi all!  Lovely progress on everyone's tops!  I've decided to make this my next project.  I'm using the called for Vintage Cotton, which is lovely but a bit easy to split, and I'm going to attempt to modify the pattern for a smaller size.  This is going to take me awhile to knit, so I'm glad to find a place where I can get encouragement!  Here's a picture of the very beginnings of my sweater!

ok i just tried it and it doesnt decrease the 17 stitches i need.    im doing the 2nd size.    to explain...i have8 rib sections and if i decrease the way u explained it would be....12 stitches decreased instead of the 17 i need.  im assuming u have one less rib section than me and that would come out to the 11 u need.

this is so frustrating, thanks so much tho star...im not sure how im gonna do this.

I've checked the internet for the decrease issue and what most people have done is just decreased all of the p2 sections and worked with 16 not 17 decreases. I've seen the FO's from this method and they've ome out fine.
