I recently finished my version of knitty's bpt:

The pattern is here:
http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall03/PATTbpt.html

I really loved this pattern and can recommend it because:
  • you knit the whole thing in one piece...no seaming!
  • the cables are easy--I'm very new to cables and found them easy to do.
  • the pattern is easy to follow once you get going.  And tons of people have already knit it, so there's lots of help on blogs
  • I think it's a great cardigan hoodie pattern and it's free!
I used pagoda from handpaintedyarn.com and love the color variations!  Wink

Wow! That looks hot! Thanks for the inspiration. How long did it take you to knit it?

That's so lovely. I was just thinking that the handpainted yarn would work beautifully in a cabled cardigan--and here you've already done it!

thanks for your nice words...it took about 3 1/2 weeks of fairly obsessive knitting!  Grin

You did a very very good job!! It seriously looks sooo professional, and I really like the colour. Did you use the yarn suggested, or did you substitute?

Your sweater looks terrific!  I am really inspired by it.  I don't know if I overlooked this pattern or just forgot about it, but I now have this vision of the two bags of Rowan Magpie currently languishing in my stash shaping themselves up into this great hoodie.

I do have a question for you: maybe I am skimming the pattern too much, but I do not understand how, if it is worked in the round, it is being split for the zipper?  I am assuming some steaking, but I did not see a mention of that in the instructions?  I must be missing something...

That is a good question:  You do not exactly work in the round...you work all the way around to one front opening and then back the other way to the other side...so you are going back and forth for the main body (there is a a front and a back side), but doing the yoke and arms and all as you go.  Not sure that made sense?!  But definitely no steeking.  Let me know if that didn't make sense, and I'll try to explain better!

I really love it , i have been wanting to do this pattern for a while now
as my first "for me"  project. How did you find the sizing? did it fit
the way it was supposed too? Im so parinoid i will make a medium that
ends up being to small

Well, I made the large, which is a little big, but cozy.  I should have tried it on more as i went; it would be easy to do that (following Barbara Walker's advice in Knitting from the Top) since it is knit from the top down.  That way you could kind of just size it to fit how you want as you go without too much worrying.  I did that with another sweater i made (just followed directions in Knitting from the Top), and it worked well.  Best of luck...

That makes fine sense to me - and sounds like fun...
