wow, i didn't know there was a knit-a-long for this. i guess i thought the one in the completed projects was a knit-a-long. Yeah! I'm in once i figure out the right gauge. i have cascade 220 that i want to use and the lovely ladies over at the completed projects minisweater post said i could use anything just as long as i cast on the right stitches. So once i figure this out i'll be rolling. Anybody know what the beginning of this sweater is, the neck maybe? I've casted on for this and frogged it a couple of times already. I don't want to have to frog again!

good luck gals,

You're casting on the top of the 'sweater'--so it's the front flaps, the shoulders and the back neck part, your increase rows make it look like raglan sleeves and then after you've knit to where the sleeves would come out from the sweater (at the armpit)you separate the sleeves from the front and back body portions

Okay it's making a lot more sense now. Thanks!

Sorry I posted this in the other thread too, but I'm up to this part in the pattern and want to continue badly, but will mess it up if I do. Argh.

"Row 15, work increase row as normal, but increase five stitches evenly over both sleeve sections."

I'm really confused where and how to put these extra increases. Between the first and second markers is the sleeve right??


"Row 17:  work increase row as normal, working sleeve sections as k3 m1, k3 m1, etc. over both sleeve."

Huh? So i do all the regular increases but also k3 m1 k3 m1 the WHOLE way, except the garter stitch border I'm assuming??? What if this pattern doesn't work evenly over my number of stitches? Does that mean I screwed up??

Argh sorry for my ignorance, but this is the first thing I've made that's not a scarf, and its confusing!!!.

"Row 15, work increase row as normal, but increase five stitches evenly over both sleeve sections." I increased four on the right side row, and then one right in the middle on the purl row.
"Row 17:  work increase row as normal, working sleeve sections as k3 m1, k3 m1, etc. over both sleeve."
You knit 3, m1 across the sleeves only. This helps make them puffy. I think it works evenly the first tiem, but not the sconds...Or something, I'm not sure. It's not too big a deal though, don't worry!

Sorry one more question,

Glampyre makes it sound like you are only using 3 pieces of waste yarn when you try the sweater on, cuz she says put the body on a piece of yarn and the two sleeves each on a piece of yarn. I thought you would need 5 pieces of yarn, for the frontish part, the sleeves, and the body. But then I don't really understand how this sweater works =(

You thread one long piece of yarn through all the "body" parts -- the front, the back, the other side of the front.  You thread one piece through each arm. 

This pattern needs illustrations!  It is really easy once you "see" it!

hey apandalee, you can put each sleeve on its own piece and then all the body sections go together on one piece. so that's 3 pieces total. make sense?

where are we going, and why am i in this handbasket?
