I used Patons Classic Wool in Leaf Green.

Here is how i did it:

My gauge was smaller than the pattern was written for.
 5 stitches = 1"  and 6 rows = 1"  So when I cast on I added 8 stitches.
I then knit as the pattern directed until it was the size I wanted.  Of course I ended up with more stitches on my needle the the pattern said i would have at my size. I had 54 stitches on each sleeve piece and didn't count what I had for the back piece.
-place 54 sleeve stitches on circular needle and place marker
-knit row and at same time increase 1 stitch before and after marker=56 sts
-join work and knit 3 more rows
-knit row and increase 1 stitch before and after marker-58 sts
-row 28 decrease 1 stitch before and after marker-56 sts
continue decreases on theses rows:
row 34=54 sts
row 40=52 sts
row 46=50 sts
row 52=48 sts
row 58=46 sts
row 64=44 sts
row 70=42 sts
row 76=40 sts
-continue working on 40 stitches for rows 77-120
-rib in knit1 purl 1 for next 10 rows
-row 131 cast off

I have never written pattern instructions before so if anything is unclear- just ask!

That looks great and I'm not a real fan of shrugs.  Did you still use only one skein Grin

I haven't made the OSW as I didn't like the mini sleeves! You have solved that problem, could you solve it for me too? give me a hint, just one!

I want to do that with the one skin wonder I'm currently working on. I have ok arms but would rather cover them up. Any tips? on how to continue on with the sleeves?

Nice work!  I liked knitting the one skein wonder with short sleeves, but this looks so great that I might have to go shrug-aholic and knit yet another one with long sleeves!
Pretty please can we have your pattern mods??
