Anyone interested in knitting this? I really want to knit it, although I'm not sure how flattering it would be on me. I don't really care at this point, I need this sweater!
I can't afford the yarn called for, so I was thinking of using a worsted weight instead. (Maybe knitpicks wota in "hush") I might also try two strands of a thinner yarn held together.

I have to admit, I'm a little in love with this coat. I don't think I'll be making it any time soon (on a yarn diet and all that) but I can't wait to see some other peoples' versions of it!

I'm totally in! I just ordered some purple Skye Tweed from WEBS for this project and I want to start it as soon as it comes. I knew I had to make it as soon as I saw the preview pic, and I was super excited when I found the issue out early at my LYS this afternoon. I'm so in love with this sweater, it's ridiculous.

LOVE! 
I also thought about starting this project.  If I start now, I might be able to wear it by Christmas  Grin

I have some Knit Picks - Wool of the Andes in Black Cherry that just might work.  Need to swatch of course!

Hey let us know how the swatching goes for you, if you don't mind. I am really hoping the WOTA works out. Even though the recommended yarn is only $60, I am a poor college student. Wink

I love this one, too!  I think Elann's Peruvian Uros Aran or Sierra Aran would work really well with this pattern.  They have lots of great shades and the price is right, too.  I have some of this in my stash and I think I may use it for this sweater.  It's really a great pattern.

Does anyone have any idea how much ease this sweater is supposed to have? My yarn should be here today, and I'm trying to decide which size to make. It looks fairly close-fitting, but the only options I have are my exact bust measurement, or one four inches larger. What do you guys think?

Well, what I would do is either...
-knit your bust size on a size larger needles, that would probably give you just enough ease, or
-just knit your bust size, because you can always leave it open or block the heck out of it when it's done, or
-go through the pattern and see if you could do a size in between those two
I personally like my sweaters with about 2 inches of ease. You might luck out and knitting with larger needles might give you that.

I'm brand new to Crafster (as in today) so I hope it's okay to just jump right in.....

...I fell in love with this sweater as soon as I received my IK in the mail.  I've finished the back last night and I'm loving it so far....if there is a KAL I'd like to be part of it.

thanks!
