That pattern is incredibly cute.  When I get the chance I will have to buy it and join in.

Has anyone used short row shaping for the bust? I'm a DD and think it's about time I learn! Can anyone help me with this?

What do you all think of Rowan Yorkshire Tweed Chunky for this? I found a great price on it, but the "official gauge" is 12 st on size 11s.
Think I could get gauge on 10.5s? 10s? or would my garment be bulletproof?

That doesn't sound too far off, to me, from the Juliet gauge of 14 sts/4".  I bet you could totally get it using 10's, and I doubt the change of 2 stitches per 4" would make too drastic of a difference in the fabric - I like things knitted slightly on the tighter side myself, and it would help to make the whole garter stitch portion tighten up a bit and not be so overwhelmingly stretchy.  I'd say go for it!  It'd be so cute all tweedy  Cheesy

I'm kinda at a standstill on mine... I've done three lace repeats, and it's not near as long as I want it - I really hate short sweaters, I want it almost to the hips.  Right now it's just feeling like I'll be knitting that lace repeat forrrevvvverrrrrr.  Plus my camera is out of commission so I can't take any progress pics anyway  Undecided  I'm hoping it'll all come together in the next couple weeks cause I want to wear this someday and show it off!

Has anyone thought about adding sleeves to this pattern...? 

I think it would be pretty straightforward, what do you think?

Jumping in! I'm going to double-strand Lion Brand Wool Ease and make the longer one.

Eloiseadelaide, I think to add sleeves, instead of binding them off, put them on scrap yarn for later, and then go back and either knit them flat or in the round. (I've been very into top-down raglans lately, and this is what most of the Fitted Knits patterns would have you do, I think.)

I just started Juliet tonight...  I have a very large chest (measures at 57") so I decided to make the largest size.  16 rows in I remembered that when I made their Rusted Root sweater the largest size was too big... I guess I'll wait until I'm down with the arms and then try it on and see how it fits... I really hope I don't have to frog...

I am using Lion Brand Jiffy in Blush (a pretty pale pink).  I'll try to post some pictures once I have more finished.  Has anyone made this in one of the larger sizes?  I'd love to see a pic of how it turned out!

I have the pattern, but haven't started it yet. Today I was at Macy's and there was a sweater almost just like it hanging up there.  The Zephyr girls are always making the good stuff, I wanted to tell the lady at Macy's hey I can make that, (so I could sound like my grandma)! Now I just have to get started.

Big Girl KNits has an excellent tutorial/formula for this. I tried it on the Wicked (which is top-down), and it worked! I believe I did my short rows over 20 sts on that one, and wrapped 6 sts total. I was kind of doing it *blind*, though...hehe.
