it's a little off on gauge, but what about: http://www.elann.com/productdisp.asp?name=elann%2Ecom+Peruvian+Sierra+Aran

I started the Tilted Duster with Elann's Peruvian Sierra Aran, but I had to rip it all out, because something was wrong with the size of the armholes....I think.  They were just way too big for the sleeves to fit into, so I started over with Malabrigo worsted.  The Sierra Aran may have been off gauge.  The Sierra Aran is a lovely yarn, though.  I have quite a bit of it in my stash and it is a great product for the price.  The colors are nice, too.

Hi everyone!

I just found you guys on here. Did you know there is a Tilted Duster KAL on Blogger as well?

Anyway, I bought the Berroco Peruvia for mine and I absolutely love this stuff. It's very soft. It is a bit fuzzy, but I think it goes through one wash it will be fine. I didn't get gauge on the 10's, so I went down to 9's and it's coming along nicely.

Ok, she's all knit up and blocked, with ends woven in... now all she needs are buttons!

Of course, now that she's done, we're in the middle of an absolutely lovely week of warm, sunny weather so I'm totally not motivated to go button shopping (or even trolling my mum's button jars).

The only mods I made to the pattern were to make the skirt a bit shorter, as I am rather petite and wanted to maintain the overall proportion.

I used Cascade's Ecological Wool... so far I'm really happy with it. Nice to knit with (I llike hints of lanolin in my wool... makes my hands soft!) Totally impressed iwth the yardage; I knit this and the Back-To-School Vest from Fitted Knits out of just over than 2 skeins. Not quite soft enough for next-to-skin wear, but somehow I don't think I'll be wearing the Duster without a shirt underneath!!! LOL.

I'll post an action shot when I have the buttons sewn on...

That's gorgeous!  I love the neck line.  I can't wait to see your button choice.

ok, so i swatched for this over the weekend.
my yarn is WOTA and i swatched on US10.
I got 18 st and 22 rows
the gauge for this is 17 and 21.
i could try to swatch on the 10,5 but the recommended needle size for the yarn is us7 to 9 and i am afraid it won't drape nicely.
My chest measurement is 32 1/2" so maybe if i knit the size 36", it will be ok, what do you guys think?
