I printed out the pattern last night and have been looking online for some yarn, but I am not as thin as the model.  I read all the posts but did not see that anybody needed a large or xlarge size.  Any ideas of how to adjust the pattern for a bigger size?  Thanks!

I started the sweater 2 days ago but did not work on it yesterday.  I have about 8 inches done so far.  I decided to use 4 strands of...oh great someone threw away my wrappers!  Anyway, my yarn is a lovely shade of dark sagey green.  One of my daughters is fairly small and I am hoping it will fit her.  Is there anyone still working on this sweater?  I was hoping someone would post over the weekend.

I'm glad you are still working on yours zombiecazz!  I did about 4 inches of the stockinette today while I waited for my daughter to see the orthodontist anddermatologist.  I am getting a little nervous about having enough yarn, do you think 3 skeins of regular non chunky yarn will do it?  I bought all they had in that particular dye lot.  I am knitting it up using 4 strands.  Best wishes on your swaps and I will be checking on your progress here.

Yes I think you'll probably get away with 3 skeins. I'm mainly using knitting machine yarn, but one of the strands is a 200gm ball and I still have plenty left to do the arms.

Hey there,

If you'd like to add some extra stitches at both sides of the body, that should about do it- the way the sweater's put together you'll widen the body and sleeve circumference at the same time. You'd just have to remember to add x stitches before and after the amount to knit before purling in the triangular neck pattern. I wouldn't worry too much that the sleeves would be disproportionately wider if you increased the body width- I made the pattern a little bit larger (one extra stitch each side) and the sleeves were a bit snug on my thin arms.

I only have about 6 inches left before I complete the body of the sweater! Yaaay!  I started with 3 skeins of yarn added another and I will need another to finish the sleeves.  I am excited at how this is turning out so far and my daughter likes it.  I only have a few minutes at a time to work on it so I feel good about how quickly it is coming together!

Is it too late to get in on this?
I've never done a knitalong, but if I have the yarn for this in my stash I'd love to try it!!

Thanks!
