WOW!!!  I love it.  I can't believe that's only 360 yards!

Beautiful work!

I love this pattern and about to knit this cardigan next but
I want to use Lion brand Thick & Quick which is
smaller than their yarn (magnum).  Do you think
if I make 1 size bigger and  it's going be fine?


I don't see why it would be a problem.  Just remember to swatch first!  I went up a needle size because I wasn't getting the right gauge, and even with the size 17 needles I couldn't get it (I think Taos is a lot thinner than Magnum as well), but it still turned out to be about the right size.

If it lives in the water or flies in the air, I'm in love with it. In New Zealand I saw a flying fish and almost wet myself.

Thank you, I'm knitting the Bold and Bulky mini cardi right now
and I notice that I pull too tight, I got 9 sts. for 4" instead of
8 Sts./4" as the original pattern's gauge.  If I use bigger needle
us#15 that would be perfect....

 I'm going to try Us#17 with
Carie and knit a little loose than my nature.
 Thank you so much again.

Looks great!  I didn't like this pattern as a cropped cardigan, but somehow it never dawned on me that if you just keep knitting, it's, duh, not cropped any more.  I really like yours!

Cute! I love the way it looks as a longer cardigan. Good idea!

That is really cute. It fits you really well and the colours of the yarn is wonderful.

I love the yarn!  It's so gorgeous! 
I have tons of bulky-ish yarn, thanks for the link to the pattern!  I think I'm going to try this next...if I ever get my son's sweater finished.  Evil sleeves.
