cameras4toys - that looks great!  What yarn did you use?  Also, how stretchy is it?  I'm just concerned that it won't fit in the bust.

I can't remember what brand yarn - it's a mohair blend. Very nice and soft. The ribbing makes this a very adjustable stretchy wrap. You do want it to wrap around enough to be able to tie to together at the front though. It could've used a few more inches for me and I am a size 10. I made the back a little wider and wished I hadn't.

This is a very warm sweater and makes your torso look extra padded - beware.

I'll be checking out that link for the Fisherman's ribbing, I never did figure that one out.

i'd love to make this in crochet too!  i can't start until august though Sad  i'm tempted to knit it, but i think the possibility of finishing is higher with crochet... 
it looks so beautiful, but i have to wonder about all that wrapping, doesn't seem like a flattering idea for most people.  oh well, love it anyway!

I'm still stuck right after the second armhole... hope to take it up again during the summer holidays. I've had to buy more yarn as the top seems to use a whole lot more than I calculated for and the yarn is being discontinued

ack, this is the longest project ever! but the end is in sight, i'm halfway done with the second sleeve and crossing my fingers that i have enough yarn left, since i'm back in seattle and the yarn is from prague! I can't quite figure out how to wrap it properly, but hopefully once the sleeves are on i can get it right.

i started this at christmas, i'm about 1/6 through i think but now i've stopped for the summer. i'm going to start up again when it gets cooler- i'm just doing a basic k1p1 rib with paton's divine. i did made a sleeveless version on bigger needles, and it was REALLY bulky, so i am a bit worried......

I see this knitalong kinda died. I was wondering whether anyone ever found good yarn subs for this pattern and had an estimate of the yardage they used. I have been wanting to make this for awhile, so help would really be appreciated. Thanks!

Hi I made half of the wrap. Then I decided it was going to be too bulky. The fishermanstitch eats yarn and the fabric became very thick. When wrapped around twice (as it supposed to be) you become a little michelin-man!
I used a mohairblend 'serenade" from schoeler and stahl, same gauge and almost same weight as ghh softkid.
yards needed: 1500 or more
