i really need to improve my pattern making skills.  (i can't stand to buy something that i know i could make...)  can anyone suggest a book that might help me in that department?

It's a very interesting piece. When I zoomed in on the grain, I saw that it was constructed in a way totally different from how I'd thought while looking at it from farther away.

yeah...it isn't quite the basic shrug or bolero...that photo doesn't do it justice...if you look at the pic on the model you can see some details (cuffs, etc) that aren't visible on the mannequin.

would the Origami Cardi from the Interweave Knits Summer 07 be a sort-of similar look to start with? http://www.interweaveknits.com/preview/2007_summer.asp

You could use that pattern as a jumping off point at least...

thanks for the link Smiley
that just might work...
i'll have to go to the bookstore tomorrow and pick up the issue...
even if i can't make that pattern work, it'll be worth it for the glove pattern alone...

That is pretty darn cute. Couldnt you just do a top down raglan cardi type deal making the two front pieces large and slowly decrease? Then you could pick up and knit the large collar and button band? That would be different than the way its constructed in the model tho Sad

That is pretty. It looks like some kind of modular construction.

Here I was thinking that looks like something Audrey Hepburn would wear, and then I scroll down and there she is Smiley

it reminds me of the sunrise circle sweater.  only obviously you'd have to change the tops of the circles to be, well, not circles.

good luck!  it's beautiful and i can't wait to see if you come up with something.
