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)

Does anyone know where else one could find patterns from this designer (Robin Melanson)? I did a Google search, but only found references to this particular pattern. I'm just curious...

well... I'm up to the shoulders on the front piece Smiley and it's gorgeous, but I'm definitely going to run out of yarn on the sleeves... the thing is that I don't even like the sleeves in the pattern very much so now I'm trying to think of other ways to do them. I have lots of complimetary coloured yarn, and might be able to do shorter sleeves with the lace pattern in a different colour and the tops in the same colour as the rest. I think I'm going to do that or just give it little lacy cap sleeves (but would i ever wear a wool top with cap sleeves? ever?)
any ideas?

oo! can you post progress photos?
i still want to be convinced.

you could, if it's your thing, stripe the sleeves with a complementary colour and then do the waist cinches in the complementar colour too.

thought you might be convinced - i actually like it in wool better than in the cotton they used (which for anyone thinking about this is 100% cotton. the yarn was discontinued and the manafacturer recommends substituting one of their own that I think would look pretty weird used for this - its a cotton viscose blend and very shimmery)

ooh and your first sweater - very exciting

Scarletkittycat, Thanks so much for the yarn link... I almost cried when I realized I would be paying over $60 for yarn!  I thought well, there goes that idea...Just ordered my yarn though and can't wait to get started!

ysolda, can't wait to see the sweater!  Congrats!

My yarn arrived today as well as 52 knitting needles I won from ebay for $16!!!  Yay! I would like to know, Ysolda, did you notice any mistakes in this pattern, or can you direct me to a page with corrections? I checked out your blog, and your corset pullover looks great!  I can't wait to get started!

I didn't notice any actual mistakes. The charts are given in a kind of weird way - I didn't actually follow the stitch patterns properly, accidently at first and then decided I liked my simpler version better in the yarn I used.
Also, perhaps obviously I did the sleeves completley differently.
The only problem I have with the fit is the shoulders, I think it was designed for someone with really round sloping shoulders, there is short row shaping at the shoulders and personally I think it is too much. I know a few bloggers have said that the neckline ended up too wide - I think this problem is mainly that the shoulders fall outward, I'm trying to fix it by blocking but at the moment the shoulders fall off.

Ysolda... another question if ya don't mind.... Undecided I started the lace chart last night but am not sure if the first square (with the "b" in it) is the selvedge stitch or should I knit the selvedge stitch and then follow the chart? and... when there is a grey square (no stitch) does that mean to move to the "sl 2tog kwise, k1, p2sso" ? 
Thank you for your infinite knitting wisdom!

you knit the first stitch and then follow the chart. You can double check this because all of the cast on number of stitches should be 3 stitches (the 2 selvage sts and the last one of the pattern that is outside the red 'repeat' box) + a multiple of 6 (the number of sts in eace pattern repeat). This works so you know thats definitely what you're doing Smiley

infinite knitting wisdom... yeah right

Thanks for your help. after starting over 5 times yesterday ( I am determined to make this perfect!) I took out my calculator to figure out the pattern.  I also printed my pattern in black and white, so I didn't notice the red pattern repeat until about the third attempt (since mine was a grey pattern repeat). All is well now and I am finally up to the bodice pattern. There will be no tv watching while knitting this beast.

good luck with it... those red boxes were what i meant when i said the charts were stupid, at least on the bodice pattern its easy to memorise so you shouldn't have to refer to the chart after your first few rows

Angry Angry Angry Angry
This pattern is really making me doubt my intelligence. Three rows up the bodice pattern and my knitting has no definite pattern.  I see frogging back to the beginning and picking up all those stitches in my future.
resisting the urge to curse since children are in the room.  Realizing I am not as good of a knitter as I thought I was when I made up my mind to knit this lovely sweater.  ( I must admit my DH is being very encouraging) brownie points for him!

EDIT: broke down and emailed Interweave and begged for help... within 2 hours Lisa Shroyer emailed me back!  She took the time to explain stitch by stitch how to read the pattern! very helpful indeed! Now I can try to tackle this pattern once again!

Thank you Lisa!

After a month of trying I finally got the hang of this pattern and finished the front!  (Happy Happy Joy Joy!) The back is now half finished as well! My dear sweet husband also promised to take me out for celebration dinner when this beauty is all finished! (he gets extra brownie points for that!) so with no further ado...

I've done the back, front, and most of one sleeve so far. I'm using Lion brand Cotton in black, which shows off the stitch patterns wonderfully. I swear this twisted ribbing is the most fabulously awesome stitch pattern I have ever felt or seen. WOW.

Glad to see someone else working on this!! I have the second sleeve cap and the cinch straps to go, I hope to be finished by thanksgiving, So glad Mom still likes to do the turkey day cooking (even though I am 27) so I have time to knit instead of cook! Must get off craftster to knit!

Juniperl13 I can't wait to see a pic of your version in black.  I was this close | |  to using black, but decided against it cause I already have more black in my wardrobe than anything else.  I also love the twisted rib, and I must admit after frogging rows of it, ( damn Nip/Tuck is so distracting!) I  can pick up stitches like a champ!

I know what you mean about the frogging. I made the mistake of not reading the entire pattern before beginning the front and consequently neglected to follow all of the "at the same time" instructions. After ripping out half of my progress I read through the pattern Very thoroughly, highlited all of the little overlooked instructions, and set forth once more with obsessively frequent use of a ruler.

I love LOVE doing the sleeves in the round. Die, seaming, die.

HOKAY. I've knit everything. I've done all the seaming. All that's left is to attach the cinch straps, but the instructions are so bloody vague that I can't for the life of me figure out how to do it. The picture, while gorgeous, is also terribly unhelpful. I understand that the straps are attached to the purl sts right between the slipped sts and the St st, but what's this nonsense about "catching the strap in the side seam"Huh

I think I figured it out. The way it's written there are no straps attached to the back piece, which makes fuck-all sense to me. I just sort of ignored the part about catching the straps in the seams and did it the way I wanted to instead. Now I just need 8 more d-rings and I can finish this bastard!
