These posts have been great! I have started a version as well with Simply Soft and cant wait to have it done - I would love to have it be long sleeves instead of a vest, so i was thinking.....

Instead of doing half the ammount of stiches for the mock rib part, what if we were to cast on more stitchs on each side? However many stiches that would equal a 3/4 length sleeve? Then when you fold it over to sew at the end, it would form the sleeves automatically, no? I am afraid to do all this knitting only to have it not work - does anyone else undertand what I am thinking, and do you think it makes sense?

If so, how many stitches do you think would need to be casted on each side to form the sleeve? Right now i have 222 stitches working on the begining rib part....Maybe an extra 50 stitches on each side done in the mock rib would do it for sleeves? Hmmmmmm - thoughts? :-)

I don't think casting on more stitches will work to enlarge the sleeves, since it's really the back section that would get wider. It's also not really a sleeve, just an extra bit that goes over the shoulder...but you can knit it as you planned, then pick up stitches around the armhole to add sleeve length...

Good luck Smiley

hey girls,

Here's my version. What do y'all think? I feel like it is a bit small. Should have work on a few more rows on those mock ribs.

samilynn9, I think I know what you;re saying, and I had been thinking the same thing.  you mean do the ribbing, then cast on additional stitches on each side, knit that down, cast off the stitches, and do the second ribbing.  right?  I think it should work.  the only problem might be it getting bulky under the arms.

I so want to get going on this now!

Hmm - I think picking up the stitches after the whole thing is knitted prob would work better - ( since maybe it will be too bulky under the arms if knitted completely in one peice for sleeves? ) I am going to continue doing the pattern without sleeves now and decide after I am finished - Seems like it would be so cozy in the fall if it had those sleeves though, Right?...:-) Ill post my pics when finished. I am working in the simply soft as well, but in a pumpkin color...Love that yarn :-)
