I just finished this cardigan today -

http://www.elizabethklett.com/images/apricot1.jpg

I used Rowan All Seasons Cotton in "organic" (off-white) and am very pleased with how it turned out.  I did some weird stuff to achieve the design - the traveling eyelets - and I don't think I did it correctly, but it turned out looking pretty much like the photos, so I'm satisfied.  I know there are others of you out there who are knitting this jacket (or who are thinking about knitting it), so I hope to see some other finished Apricots at some point!

Thanks, y'all.... I love Rebecca patterns too, but man, this one was really unclear.  I kinda just winged a lot of it.  Smiley

Ooh! That's a gorgeous top, you did well. I don't know if I could do it, what with having the patience of a 2 year old.

Great job!  That is a beautiful sweater.  You have some really great pieces already complete!

Can I ask a web site question - where did you get your percent complete status bar in the "Currently Knitting" section?

I got the percentage bars from Anna Knits - her website is here: http://annamation.ca/annaknits/blog.  Very easy to use.

Gloriana,
I had trouble finding that link, but did find a different one. I love that bar that you use!

Your Apricot Jacket looks great.  It looks really good on you.

I've been wanting to knit this one for awhile and just found this issue of Rebecca at my LYS. Do you think this pattern would work okay in a wool or wool blend?  I could use cotton but I'm thinking I may get more wear from a wool sweater.  I'm just curious as to whether the detailing and drape of the sweater will work as well with wool.  Thanks!

legallyblonde - I don't see why it wouldn't work with a wool yarn.  You may want to do a google search for the sweater (a lot of people have made this one) and see if anyone has made it in wool.  Since the yarn called for in the pattern is a cotton/acrylic blend, you may want to sub a wool/acrylic blend....  just my thoughts.

Thanks!  I tried to search blogs to find one made of wool but I didn't see any. Most have used cotton.   I have wool and Cotton-Ease that would be the same gauge as the Rowan you used leftover from other projects so I may try swatching a bit to see what I like best.

I'm pretty sure that Bonne Marie's was made in a wool or wool blend. Paton's, maybe?

Lazynoo, join the "Apricot is driving me crazy" club.  I have never been so frustrated getting started on a project.  Here's something I posted on my blog about it...
http://stacyknits.blogspot.com/2005_05_01_stacyknits_archive.html

I see you found the Knit Along.  It's a huge help!  Once you get going on a piece, it isn't difficultr.

I put my Apricot on hold last summer. I thought I'd pick it back up in August for fall wear but a couple of baby projects I had to get done halted that.  I'll pick it back up soon!

I love this design so much! I've been itching to make it, but I'm hesitating... how would it look on someone with a somewhat large chest and a short torso? Would it be flattering?

CNP71201,
i suggest you to shorten the bottom ribbing ( the pattern ask for 20cm of ribbing), i've seen some people shorten it to 15 cm and the result is still a beauty.
