The forest of talking trees,
They used to sing about the birds and the bees.
The bees had declared a war,
The sky wasn't big enough for them all.

I'm trying to figure out what yarn to use for this at the moment - I'm thinking a wool cotton blend might work well --- anyone have any other ideas

i'm currently swatching for this - with some rather unexpected yarn choices (stopped myself from going shopping and spending a fortune on rowan all seasons cotton - which incedientally i think would be gorgeous for this) this is going to be stashbusting, or i can't make it.
so i'm swatching with 4ply wool and oddly seem to be getting reasonably close to gauge

hm... i decided against the thing. it seemed a little shapeless on closer inspection.
i adore the neckline, but am indifferent to the waistband/ body cut/line/ whatever.

show me some pretty photos at the end to reconvince me.

is this 4 ply on the 5mm needles? or no?

Hmm, the pattern does involve short-row shaping and it has cinch straps, so I would think it wouldn't be shapeless....but it's hard to tell. The more I look at this sweater, the more I like it. Do you know what I wish? I wish that patterns would suggest how much ease to factor in. I would like it to fit me the way it fits the model, but I can't tell from looking what the difference is between her bust size and the finished size. Hmph.

it says that the model is wearing the 35 1/4 size - and that it is designed to fit closely and to make it to the size closest to your real bust measurement, I'm making this size but I'm not so sure about the ease, I'm planning on looking over the schematics more closely before i get any further into it.
I'm getting gauge with 4 ply wool on 4mm needles, but I knit relatively loosely I believe, theres no way I'd get 19.5 sts on 5mm needles - ever, and i knew that just looking at the gauge. I've done about 2 inches but know i followed the bodice charts wrongly so I'm ripping back to the edging (the charts in this pattern are a bitch to figure out, there is no indication of how to read them and parts outside the pattern repeat are shown on the charts, as you can probably tell I'm not too happy about how this pattern is written - I know I need to spend more time going over it highlighting parts or I'lll be ripping back a lot) anyone want any advice on reading those charts I'm here for you (apart from this the pattern isn't difficult, just irritating)

as for the shaping issues, there is short row shaping (and very vague advice on how to make the bust bigger without going changing the rest of the size, so say your bust was 36" you would want to knit the 35 1/4 size and add a  couple of extra short rows.) Its not normal advice but i would look at the schematics and choose the size that matches your waist measurement - and then follow that and adjust the short rows to fit your bust. (let me know if you want any more specific advice on doing this)
