Wow!  So impressive!  Thanks for posting that ohmystars!  This calls for more exclamation points!!!!!

I have so many projects on my plate right now that it seems I might not get to this one for a while, at least a person-sized version.  But when I do I definitely would like to get the dimensions to the point where it has a shawl collar kind of deal, and is pinnable in the middle, like the urban outfitters' version.  I imagine you'd do that by knitting more rows into the first section or something - but I'm struggling with how to do that without making the sweater too long for my short self.  I tried the UO sweater on and it was definitely too big. 

So if anyone has a similar kind of vision and decides to execute it, please post it here!

I saw Ohmystars version on her blog and it lead me to this forum I've been drooling over that eagal outfitters sweater for a while now and now I know how to create it. I hadn't realized how simple it was thanks for posting it's been a huge help.  Grin

I don't create I just take what God has given me and make it look different.

Also, I'm told there is another way to construct a sweater like this that just involves knitting a large rectangle, folding it in half, and sewing up the sides but leaving space for arm holes.  I'm investigating, and may attempt a second tiny sweater... of course others are welcome to as well!

yep, this would form much the same shape as the T shape one because it's exactly how mine looks folded up.. you'd just have an ugly seam across the back.

my one actually stretches across my bust, and there is enough fabric for a shawl collar, it's just kind of squooshed on mine.

Would there be a seam across the back?  I wish I were able to draw a diagram... I thought, since you're only sewing up the sides (?) that the seams would be in pretty much the same spot (under the arms).

Anyway, I popped by UO at my lunch today to glance at their version, and it still seems to me that theirs is not perfectly rectangular, or perfectly t-shaped.  I can't explain it.  Of course, it might have to do with the way the ribbing changes... Has anyone else seen that sweater in person?

So, I've been doing some thinking about this.  I have an idea, but am not sure if it is going to work.

I'm pretty short myself, and definitely don't want the finished product to look like it is swallowing me.  I've taken about an inch off of all of the measurements on the Yesterknits pattern.  I'm going to finish knitting the t shape.  I'll then seam it up and reassess.

I'm thinking that I may then pick up stitches and knit a few rows in ribbing that goes in the opposite direction and round it toward the bottoms.  This will give me the extra I need to pin it in the center.  Don't you think?  Any ideas would be appreciated.

i just finished the model. it was pretty easy. (now to find a little girl who wants a lime green shrug for her barbies)

yesterknits wont send me the pattern, it keeps saying i have an invalid sn or something

i'll try to enlarge the pattern myself with some yuck acrylic garage sale yarn.

yep the seam where the two rectangles meet would be across the back.. pit to pit-ish.
to make a front that cinches inwards like the UO one you'd need to taper the ends of the two tips of the T. for a shwal collar you'd add more sts to the top of the T (either by increasing or picking up afte you seam it). it'd look more like this:

i got the pattern from yesterknits too so i'm going to give it a go this weekend

A question for ohmystars or guessica,
How long did you wait for the free Yesterknits pattern? Does it take a few days for them to respond?

ohmystars, I was just trying to figure out the dimension too.  What do you mean by 12x12" for each square?   Huh
