Here she is!!!!!!!!! (I also posted on the completed projects page, so I'll only put one photo here)



The MC, dark purple, dark green & light green are all Ella Rae classic, the gold is patons classic merino & the light purple is Galway.

I'm not sure if the stitch counts for the neck are right in the instructions, they seemed way off to me so I just sort of went with my gut - I'm not even sure of how many stitches I ended up with, but it was definitely more than 78.

I'm totally in love with this sweater, I can't wait for the weather to cool down!!

Make sure you keep your receipt Superstitch! I've got a full 3 or 4 balls of yarn that I didn't use. (one each of the gold & dark purple colours & 2 of the MC) I'm taking them back so I can get yarn for the tangled yoke cardigan from the Fall IK Smiley

D.I. - wow, that's stunning.  It looks wonderful on you too so you nailed it on the sizing and shaping.  I hear you about the weather--I can't think of knitting a 100% wool sweater right now in our 90 degree heat!

hi there, you can't add one repeat to the pattern--you need to add repeats in pairs--ie, you need to add 2 repeats or 32 sts. because of the way the sleeves, yoke are situated over the pattern repeats, adding one repeat would make the front larger than the back (or the back larger than the front ) OR you'd end up with the yoke uncentered on the fair isle patterning, which would create a skewed, asymmetrical look at the raglan lines. does that make sense? you need the same number of full repeats for the front and back of the body.
