I have so much Yorkshire Tweed 4-ply that I've been trying to find the perfect pattern for.. And since my bust is smaller, it might fit me if I knit it to 24 sts per 4"! Cheesy Hooray! I might make long sleeves, though, it gets awful cold here in Denmark.

It's absolutely gorgeous, and I love the colour and the lace detail. Smiley Oh, and the ribbing at the waist! Well done. Smiley

Miss_T_Dane: Thank you.  I'm glad you like it.  Smiley  I think it would look great with long sleeves, and the 4 ply yarn would make it smaller.  You might also get away with using 8 ply yarn, depending upon the fit you want.  The finished measurements were taken after washing the sweater and wearing it for a couple of hours.  It measured 15 1/2" across before I wore it.  Good luck if you decide to knit it.  I look forward to seeing a photo.   Cheesy

KnitingHunter: Welcome to the forum!  You knit beautifully.  Such intricate designs, and the colours are amazing.  I can only imagine how long each one took to make.  Maybe you should start a new topic and post the photos there so more people will see them.   Smiley

soobeeoz - Thanks! Smiley I almost wish my birthday present from my dad hadn't just arrived - 7 skeins of Felted Tweed for the Tangled Yoke Cardi. Wink Which to start first?! Oh woe is me, I have too much yarn. Tongue
I might change the neckline as well as the sleeve length.. V-necks look kinda funny on me. Maybe a scoop neck? Have no idea how to pull that off, but I'll just have to take a look at some other patterns.
Again, I love what you've done with this sweater. Smiley Just gotta pull myself together and cast on! Wink

Again your sweater is absolutely beautiful, soobeeoz!   Shocked
Thanks again, for sharing your pattern with us. That was very kind of you to do.
I can't wait to make this sweater. It's gorgeous!!!
I've printed off the pattern but I'm wondering if anybody has any advice for me, about the following two questions.

# 1 - Would anyone know how I would go about making this sweater
        with a regular neckline, as opposed to the V-neck?
# 2 - Would anyone know how I would go about making this sweater
        with long sleeves, as opposed to the 3/4 sleeve length?

I can't stand to be cold and that is why, I'd like to make those two changes.

Thanks a bunch, to whomever has any suggestions about this.  Roll Eyes

Thanks again to everyone for the lovely comments.   Smiley

KnitingHunter: When you log onto Craftster's Knitting Forum, there's a "New Topic" button to the upper right.  Click on that, and you'll be able to post your links.  That way more people will have a chance to see photos of your FOs.  As it is, many are probably thinking "it's just about that old pink sweater again" and not opening the post.  I look forward to seeing your other photos.  Smiley

Miss_T_Dane: Lucky you recieving 7 balls of Felted Tweed!  Happy Birthday!   Smiley  The Tangled Yoke Cardi is beautiful.

queen-gueneviere & Miss_T_Dane:  I'd originally planned to make the sweater with a scoop neck, then changed my mind as that's all I seem to have been knitting lately.  Please keep in mind I'm not a professional designer and this hasn't been test knitted, but it should work.

Scoop Front Neck Instructions:

Knit as for back until start of armhole shaping in original pattern.  Work armhole edge cast offs and decreases, but don't divide for neck until work is approx 3 1/2 inches past start of armhole shaping.   You should have 73 sts remaining. 

Shape neck by working 30 sts, then bind off centre 13 sts.  ***NB I've found some yarns have a tendency to roll forward when "finishing" with just one row of knitting.  If this is the case with your yarn, you could slip these stitches onto a holder and pick them up later when finishing the neckline.  Same goes for the back neckline.***   

Now, working one side at a time (or if preferred, join in another ball of yarn and work both sides at once) dec 1 st at neck edge every row 7 times, then dec 1 st at neck edge every alternate row 8 times.  You should now have 15 sts left (on each side).   Continue knitting until front armhole is the same length as back, then shape shoulders as for back.

I haven't written a pattern with flared sleeves before and it took me three tries to get a shape I was happy with so I'm a bit hestitant to offer a suggestion, but to lengthen the sleeves I'd try spacing the shaping over more rows.  For example, if you wanted to add four inches to the length, instead of increasing every 6 rows after the lace pattern, you might increase every 10 or 11 rows.  If anyone has any other suggestions, please chime in.  You could also add another lace repeat, and/or make the cuff wider by starting with more stitches if you think the proportions would look better that way.

A couple of people have asked me for other sizes.  I'm currently working on 36 & 38, and when I'm done can send the changes to anyone who'd like them.
