Thanks for all the kind comments!

Okay - modifications were minimal.  I adjusted to make a 35" bust, casting on fewer stitches, shrinking the garter stitch panels on the sides of the body accordingly.  I shortened the body - I think maybe knitting for 13" before joining the sleeves. Sleeves were knit shorter and skinnier.  I used the Zimmerman ratio (approximately) to come up with the final number of stitches for the sleeves.  I also decreased the yolk depth.  I followed the short row, decrease row order given in the pattern, just reduced the number of short rows and the overall depth at the center back.  (I measured another raglan style sweater that I had to get an idea of appropriate measurements.)

I used seven skeins of the Classic Elite.  In fact, I had just enough to cast off.  Yarn arrived at the end of August - I cast off on Oct. 15 (with a few weeks of no knitting at all somewhere in the middle).

I've been wanting to make one of these for myself to replace my frumpy but comfy sweatshirts. I'm so glad to see it can be sized down and look good on a woman. Looks great on you!

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

Wow! your sweater looks great. I, too, had admired that pattern in IK. I assumed it wouldn't flatter, but it sure does. I'm making one.

lovely jumper and what a gorgeous colour. I've just ordered my copy of IK so that I can have a go. Thanks for the inspiration!

Very nice! I've been looking for a first sweater pattern and I like how this one looks. Is this a good first one to try, in your opinion?

Also I was thinking it would look cool with a contrasting color after the garter stitch section, is there anything tricky in the pattern that would make that difficult?
