I have a question about this (since I mainly make scarves I don't know much about following a pattern):  for the rib pattern it says 'k2 (k2, p2)' what does that mean?

Help would be totally appreciated as I would LOOOVE to make this.  V. pretty shrug

You look fab in that Smiley  I cast on for this a couple of days ago, and I've just got to the increase every 12th row - is that right?!  That seems to be a long increase! 
I'm using some Rowan Cork (for those in the know, it's from a frogged Freda that looked rediculous on me! Cheesy) for it that seems to match the gauge and number of metres needed, but at the mo I can't see me having enough Sad  I shall see anyway Smiley

Socomfyhere - I think you are misreading the pattern.  From what I see it says "k2 (p2 k2)" for the first line of rib and then "p2 (k2 p2)" for the second.  All this means is that you start with the bit outside the brackets, and then repeat the bit inside the brackets until the end of the row.  Hope that helps you Smiley  I'd like to see another one or two Hugs made up before I get to the end of mine Wink

Ok, I've just done some more increase work, and I really don't think I'll have enough yarn Sad  To those people who have made this - would it be a really bad thing to increase every 6th row instead of every 12th row, and then knit the thin bit at the back a bit longer?  That would save me frogging too much, the arms are quite long anyway, and that way I might be able to knit the whole thing with my Cork.  Otherwise I might have to knit the back in a different colour, which I really don't fancy doing, but if I have to I will - don't really want to buy more yarn when I got it for free for a different project anyway, and the colour difference might be too much.

I've also cast on for this, and it seems like the sleeves are soooooooooo long with the increase every 12 rows. Yet, I keep on knitting.....

Gosh bryonyramsden, I don't know how to answer the question about changing the increases.  I'm pretty new at knitting sweaters and such.  It sounds like that should work in theory. Smiley

The sleeves on mine come down past my wrists, but I wanted them that way.   Smiley

Cheers Trebuchet Smiley  At least I won't have to frog much if it doesn't work, so I might be daring and experiment!  Nothing to lose really!

I'm almost finished with it, and I don't think it would work to increase every 6 rows, your sleeves will be too short. 

I'm not too thrilled with this pattern.  It could have been a little more thourough.  We'll see how it looks when it's finished.  hmmmm.....

Hmmmm.  Well, I was just sorting through some stash, and found 2 odd balls of Cork in a different colour that I bought ages ago without labels on, so it's only since I was sent the green stuff from Rowan that I have been able to identify it.  If the sleeves will be too short with an increase at the 6th row, then I'll have to make the back in a different colour if the odd bits will go with the green.

Thanks for the tip!

Ok, I have a question about this pattern.

I've finished increasing every 12th row, and have just added my 45th and 46th stitches.  The next bit of the pattern says to bind off 2 stitches at the beginning of the next two rows.  It seems a bit daft to cast on two stitches only to bind them off straight away, so should I be knitting another set of 12 rows?  Otherwise it seems to imply that I'll have this silly little bit sticking out on the edges for one row...

Anyone who has made this, I would love some advice right now!

Thanks in advance Smiley

Yeah, I'm pretty sure that you need to knit another 12 rows before you bind off the two stitches.

You've probably got a good handle on this, but let me know if you'd like me to take better pictures of the shrug off and laid out on a table or something.  It might help to visualize what's going on as you follow the pattern?  I always have to draw little pictures for myself before I understand instructions/patterns.
