Hi all, I steeked it, and it came out awesome! here is a pic:

I have the other half, also steeked, does anyone want it? You can seam it up, and it would be a perfect shrug. Note that it is a bit big, probably be good for someone in my size range. (size 16)Let me know!

Hello everyone Smiley I think I might join this here knitalong, with a few modifications to the pattern. First I have some questions:

1. If I wanted to have it come down to the hip area, I would knit the rectangles longer, right? But then I'd sew up the parts that I added that were longer than the F to F area in the pattern, so that I didn't end up with some kind of crazy-huge armholes.

2. If I wanted there to be more overlap in front and/or a lower button/pin point, I would make the ribbing longer, right?

3. In the pics, after sewing, when it's circular and laid out, the center bits look like they foomp out some - are they loose in the back, when worn, or do they conform to your shape more?

4. If I wanted to add sleeves, I would just pick up the stitches in the area between the two F's, and just go wacky with 'em?

I'll be honest with ya, I'm trying to recreate something that's a lot like this:

Different stitchpatterns, but the same shaping Smiley Do you think that's possible with this pattern?

1. There is only one rectangle in the pattern... go here to view it unseamed /seamed: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=45597.100 scroll down a bit on the page to view it. If you want it to come down to the hip area, just knit the mock rib section longer. I made mine 22" long to come down to my waist.  So you might want to measure from your shoulder to your hip, and then knit the mock rib part to that measurement. You won't end up with crazy huge armholes.

2. I made my ribbing 8" long on each end, and it looks like the White Lies one, so I would suggest that.

3. It definitely comforms to your shape, if you make it the right size. Make sure you check your gauge in mock rib if that is the stitch you are usuing, and measure from shoulder to shoulder, not adding any inches for cap sleeves.

4. Yup, that is exactly what you would do!

I think if you also look at chiaobella's, you can see how she made the sleeves:http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=45597.160

Good Luck!

That sweater that you linked to is knit as a T and then seamed up to make it a sweater. It is 2x2 ribbing in the body to give you the stretch. I don't know what the lace edging is exactly in that pattern, but you can use any you want.
If you wanted to do it in pieces you would knit the back, with the short rows for extra length in the back and then add the sleeves by knitting a tube, or a rectangle and make a tube, and then just seam them to the body of the sweater. Knitting the sleeves as rectangles is probably easier to add the lace edging to.

Hmm...  so, since I hate wearing seams (personal quirk Cheesy) what I could do is...


A. use a provisional cast on, do the larger rectangle shape of cuff-to-cuff, pick up the main body bits and knit fronm there, kitchener the sleeves and pick up the cuffs to add the lace, kitchener the sides and be done

or,

B. make the main body with a 2x2 rib or other decorative pattern, kitchener it up as per usual for the pattern, pick up the sleeves and do them circular, which wouldn't give the same bumpy texture in the same direction of the body. Decisions, decisions! XD

Happy/sad thing is that the recycled wool I was going to use for this looks like crap swatched up Tongue muchas pilling, I think it was just a bad sweater to try and save, but maybe I can use it for felting or a cat bed or something. Happy part is that if I use a more open and/or stretchy stitch, I can use this baby silk I've got gathering dust, because I didn't order enough for a full sweater Tongue
