I started this already, but would love for someone else to join me so I can get my tush in gear.  I'm using Cascade 220 Heathers color 9406 and size 8 addis.

Here's the bonus photo from the web http://www.interweaveknits.com/galleries/bonus/fall2007/flood.asp
And here's my progress

I love this sweater!!!
I can't make up my mind between this and the duster on the cover. But this one will probably win, considering how close we are getting to PRESENT TIME.
I'll check back when I've picked up some yarn...

I'm in! My boyfriend idly mentioned how much he liked this pattern - seven times. Hopefully I'll have it done by our fourth anniversary at the end of January. I've bought seven skeins of gorgeous coffee colored Silky Wool off ebay. It's not as flecked and tweedy, but it has a subtly rich effect knitted up and it's one of C.'s favorite colors.

Awesome!!  I'm glad there's interest!  I'm sure I'll need someone to hold my hand through the short rows  Roll Eyes  I want to make a deadline for myself on it so I know it'll be done before Christmas .  I always have so many projects going at one time. . .

ratdogforever ~ I contemplated the duster, too but it was WAAAYY too much stockinette for me to handle and DH really needs a sweater Wink

soubriquet ~ that's AWESOME that he actually hinted at it!!  It's a definite must make, then!!  Post a pic of the yarn, it sounds LOVELY!

Tanja ~ I pm'd you Wink

I knoooow!  Tongue
That made up my mind. I'm putting the BF before myself...I just have to find some decent yarn. I've pretty much decided on Cascade 220 Heathers in color 2446...it's a very nice olive green.

Have you guys calculated the amout of Cascade 220 that.............. wait, OF COURSE you have. So how much Cascade are you planning on using? I notice that the original pattern calls for another yarn.... sooooooo, what did you come up with?  Wink

I really want to make this sweater for myself, as a sort of sweatshirt alternative. Maybe with a bit of waist shaping, or possibly more tunic shaped. Other things to finish first, though.

Cascade 220 has twice the yardage per skein than the yarn called for, so I just halved the amount. I'm making the medium? I think? Whichever calls for 14 skeins. I ordered 7 plus one more to be safe.

You could TOTALLY do it in a worsted cotton!  Or, depending on the size you'd need to make, you could make a larger size in a lighter weight yarn, like maybe a sport weight cotton? 


SilvrIlix ~ what ratdogforever said is right on the money.  Double the yardage and it's fairly inexpensive for an AWESOME yarn with many many many color choices. 

Progress update ~ I'm at the part where I need to put the garter sts on scrap yarn and start on the sleeves.  This is where I'm sure I'm be slow as molasses.  I just don't wanna do the sleeves LOL  It doesn't help that I'm working on Girlfriend's Swing Coat http://knitandtonic.typepad.com/knitandtonic/2005/08/draft_7.html and the Argosy scarf http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter06/PATTargosy.html
At least I'm not getting too bored LOL

My yarn came today and it is PERFECT.
My boyfriend dropped me off at my office this morning and when I saw the package by my door, I ran back outside and yelled "your yarn is here!!"
He did a really good job of acting excited.
I expect I'll swatch it this evening and cast on by tomorrow...

It's official! I am the tightest knitter in history.
I swatched with size 9 addis and got 19 stitches per inch. I'm going to run with it and make the 47" size (what he wants) and hope that it will come out closer to 46" or 45" (what I want).
I'm still not sure about the measurement, though, so I'm going to watch it closely and if it looks too big I'll frog it and start again in the 43" size.
Other than sizing worries, the knitting has been very satisfying. I really love this yarn!

I'm considering making this. I think it could work as a top-down? What do you think?

*EDIT* Nevermind. I got WAY too confused.

I'll be knitting it top-down when I do it. It makes it so much easier to try on as you go.

Here's my progress.  Not much more than before but I'm at the point where I have to start on the sleeves.  Slowly but surely I'll get this done by X-mas.  I wish I had the will power to do just 1 project at a time LOL



I wish I were smart enough to alter the pattern top down.  *sigh* maybe next time. . .

I don't know if this helps, but an easy formula is:  of the total cast on stitches 1/3 for front, 1/3 for back, 1/6 each sleeve.  If the cast on total isn't divisible by six you just fudge an extra stitch or two to the front and/or back.  You place your markers at those points and increase every other row until you have enough stitches in the front and back to equal your bust size then you put on waste yarn and try it on.  If it's good then divide off the sleeves.

I always use the 1/3-1/6 formula for top downs and it has never failed me.

THANKS!!!!!! That helps a lot!

Actually, I am going to make this for my dad, so I wouldn't be trying it on, although I suppose we're roughly the same size. But this helps a lot - now I can try to make other things top-down as well!

I found that formula on a blog ages ago I think it was Martian Mischief and ithas been the BEST thing I learned.

You can come up with all kinds of designs, with any kind of yarn.  The possibilities are endless!

Okay then... (sorry, long babbling here) so I'm going to make the size 43-ish one (and I'm making it for my dad, so I'm not worried about shaping beyond the raglan)... it looks like the collar is supposed to end with 76 stitches, so to make it divisible by six, I'm going to CO 78 instead and then knit 4 rounds. Then I'm going to divide it and place markers - 26, 13, 26, 13 (I think the math is right). Then it sounds like I just increase before and after each marker every other row (so, since it's garter, I'll knit, m1, k1, slip marker, k1, m1, then knit... and the purled rows are even) until the front and back together are about 200 sts (since the pattern says to CO 194 for the body alone). Then separate sleeves from the body.

Would I keep knitting in garter for just a little longer, or does the paneling begin right under the arms? I can't tell exactly. I think it begins right away?

Then I guess it's divided into 15-82-15-82 stitches for the front/back/sides, and work even 14 inches, then do 2 inches of garter stitch for the hem. Does that sound about right? Knitting geniuses, please help!

The sleeves I think I need help with, because I'm not sure how to work backwards on this one...

I don't have the pattern handy but I think this has some shortrows across the back at the bottom of the garter part. This is to raise the back neck and lower the front neck. Don't forget those! Sometimes these are done at the neck but I think I remember them being at the yoke bottom on this one.

The short rows are definitely at the bottom of the yoke. I'm a short row virgin and I think I might need to read up or practice on a tiny sock before diving in to the yoke section of the sweater.
Or I could just dive in without any practice at all and see how it goes.
I am loving how my sweater is knitting up, by the way. I decided to frog and do a little math to get a size between 43 and 47 inches. I'll be knitting the larger size sleeves. I'm hoping it will fit just right considering he is mediumish and has broad shoulders.
I would show you guys a picture, but my camera is being held hostage in my friend's apartment....

I think I might take a stab at this one, too.  My boyfriend likes it a lot, and if I start now, I might get it done by our fourth anniversary in April. I am worried about the sweater curse, though. Does anyone have any experience one way or the other? Is there a way I can curse-proof the sweater? Or is knitting him a sweater he likes make it curse-proofed to begin with?

I wish you could see the detail better, but of course I had to pick a dark color  Roll Eyes  DH does like it, though, and of course he's a goof. . .
