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

Sorry i have no clue, I left off the straps, but if you email this lady lisas@interweave.com she will answer your question. Lisa is the kind soul at Interweave that will help you with any of their kniting patterns.

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!
