P.S. on that last post.

My ribbing turned out really loose, even though I switched to the smaller needles and tried to knit tightly.  In fact, this usually seems to happen with me.  I suppose the fact that it was cotton & so not stretchy was part of it.  But any other suggestions?

Question for you ladies: I am thinking about making this sweater, but would love to use a nice, bulky handspun yarn.  Do you think it would work?  Should I just make it a few sizes too small?  Has anyone done this?

If anyone has any ideas, I'd love to know.  I'd hate spending $30 on a lovely yarn only to realize that it won't work out.

Valkyrie you could use a bulky weight yarn, you'll need to do some gauge and figure out how many less stitches to cast-on. I'm thinking about doing this myself, maybe we can work thorough it together... I've got to finish my first one though...I'm about one row away from doing the sleeves. I'll let you know when I've bought some yarn!

speaking of sleeves, those of you who modified your sleeves to be longer, did you do any increasing to accomodate your guns? I've got happy chub arms and was wondering if i'd need to add anything in there. Smiley

Thanks for the advice...now I just need to find the money to get the yarn, and I'm all set.

I've been seeing everyone crank out such lovely OSW.  I think this would be a good swap....you could get really creative for really cheap.

I am halfway through this, and I thought I had enuf yarn, but I ran out  Embarrassed so now I will have to get some more. I am using a chunky yarn - Lionbrand Suede in fuschia, and my gauge was 10 stitches = 4" on US 11 (8mm) needles, and my arm circumference was 18", so I cast on 45 sts. Valkyrie I hope that helps.

BTW, buy more yarn than you need  Undecided  Wink

Do you guys think that Iro would be too thick for this? I got two really pretty skeins from my Secret Pal, and they'd make a great OSW.

You guys all rock!  Every single osw I've seen are amazing. I've been wanting to try this pattern for the longest.  But now to my dilemma  Huh  I'm a bit confused.  I've done the seed stich on both sleeves and had a bit of a hard time seaming the sleeves I just learned how to do it well still learning more like it.  The confussing part is picking up the stictches.  I've gone from the neck to the left sleeve and then it says to transfer stitches from holder to needle.  Now how am I supposed to pick up the stitches on the right sleeve.  Please help I'm trying to finish this today so I can wear it for Thanksgiving!!!

Happy Holidays everyone

Happy Knitting!!!!!!
