I missed that little change first time around and kept increasing every other round for a few inches and was trying to figure out just how big around this monster sweater was going to be. Yep, change to increases on every 6th round.

Thanks!!
Here's my progress so far. I swear I am not really hunchbacked, but the boy didn't want to get up off the couch to take the pic.


Here it is on the bed, this picture is pretty true to the real color. I love it!

Okay I have a question. On the adult version, it says the following:
"Change to the following pattern:
Purl 1 round.
Knit 1 round.
Repeat these last 2 rounds 3 times.
On the last knit round increase 1 st. every section by knitting into the front and the back of one stitch. Repeat these 6 rounds maintaining the colour change every 18th round."   
Okay, I am reading this I am only increasing on one out of six rounds at this point. I think I'm correct but I wanted to double check since I've been doing increases every other round for so long. Thanks!

you are correct

That's looking great amyb444!  Keep up the good work!  The rounds after the armholes just get longer... and longer... but it does eventually end!  hahaha!  I'm on to working the sleeves!

I had a go at the childs version, I REALLY enjoyed knitting it, I found I really couldn't put it down!

On Saturday morning I went up into the roof to look through my stash for something suitable for a scarf, I'd been following this thread and whilst sorting through my yarn I found some that I thought would make the pinwheel for my neice ...I finished this little jacket on the Tuesday!! the yarn for the scarf is still in the bag in my bedroom!

Here's my little neice in her new Jacket:





I was a tad disapointed that it came up a little on the small size but then i didn't use the correct yarn, it fits now but i don't think it will fit for long!!

Thanks for the link to the pattern  Smiley

It looks great and at her age, she'll grow taller more than she grows around, so she may be able to wear it for a year or more.

It was an aran weight yarn by Patons, it had about 15% wool content, and I think it only took 4 x 50g balls, i have a ball left but it's not in my stash, if i can track it down I'll come back with the full details!!

The gauge wasn't quite spot on, it was the correct number of stitches but the rows were a bit out, i think that's why it came up a bit small, the overall size isn't too bad but the arms are a bit tight at the top

Edit: I used 200g of Patons Beehive, soft Aran blend

When she gets a little bigger, flip the sweater around - it'll be shorter in the hem, wider in the collar, and a bit broader in the shoulders.  she'll get more wear out of it that way.

I will be joining in on this Knitalong as soon as I can! I have the yarn and I'm just making myself finish something else before I cast on.
