man i love the one with the hood so much... i dont have caron simply soft is there another substitution that you could think of for it?

simply soft is just worsted, so if you found something else cheap that you could hold two strands together for, it should work.  I did go up a needle size, and i didn't quite get gauge, so I had to subtract some stitches from my cast on.

I'd like to try and make Skully for my boyfriend (and brave the curse) but my boyfriend is pretty broad shouldered.  Has anyone altered the pattern for their man?
I knit it for my great big teenage son last Christmas and it was met with total disdain as it was too big for him (it didn't show off his lithe physique).  I think your guy would have to be a full blown grizzily bear not to fit into the large.

I substituted a large yin and yang symbol on each shoulder .  I think it is a very cool sweater but it definitely had flaws.  I've just frogged the sleeves up to the symbols and I plan to shape them.  Also,
I had problems with the arm holes (like someone else mentioned) and initially knitted a gusset into each armpit. I've not decided what to do yet so the sweater sits on the couch awaiting resurrection.  I may steke (spelling?) the sides and trim them a bit so my boy won't dissapoint the girls.

I used the Lamb's Pride Bulky.  Ain't glamorous but I'm happy.

Quincy134,

I pretty much knit the pattern as written, until you're supposed to pick up the stitches for the collar ribbing.  I picked up stitches around the neck opening like normal, but then I knit back and forth, making a long flap.  The flap was garter stich for the first and last 5 stitches, and stocking stitch in between.  When I decided the flap was long enough to make a hood from, I bound off.  Then you fold the top edge of the flap in half, and sew the edges together.  I hope that helps!!!

question-
i have finished the front and back, and just finished the 3 needle BO for one shoulder. then, the pattern says to PU 54 stitches for the collar with RS facing. does this mean the RS facing me, or each other? i can't exactly figure out how to do this, unless i have the sweater pieces next to each other, like conjoined twins, with the RS facing me. is this what i'm supposed to do?
otherwise, it seems like i'd have to use a circular needle, just to be long enough and flexible enough to get around.
i'm sure if i just try starting it the way it seems right (conjoined twins) it will make sense, i'm just worried about ruining anything i have already made.
this is my first sweater attempt. thanks for your help.

I'm sorry to bring such an old thread back up, but does anyone remember the gauge on this one? I've lost my book, but fortunately I had copied down the pattern. The only thing I hadn't noted down was the gauge...   Embarrassed
