I am at the point where the sleeve portion is long enough to match the circumference of my upper arm.  The pattern says to put the sleeves on waste yarn and then finish the rest of the sweater.

Can I finish off the sleeves first instead and put the rest of the sweater on waste yarn....I don't see why it can't be done this way but if not please let me know....I would hate to mess up at this point!  I would rather finish off the sleeves first and then do the rest as I am not sure how long I want mine to be yet and am fast running out of yarn....I might wing it...




I don't see any reason why you wouldn't be able to do that, except that its gong to be easier to move the smaller number of sleeve stitches to waste yarn than the very large number of stitches that make up the body.

I ran out of yarn binding off the ruffles for the last sleeve (darn ruffles!). I used a piece of orange yarn to finish it off and surprisingly, I hardly notice it.

I just use a circular needle to hold stitches while I knit the other ones. You can just knit off it when you're ready for that section.

Can someone help me? I don't know how to yarn overe with out actually knitting a stitch. If I knit or purl a stitch when I yarn over then I end up haveing like 6 too few stitches.

Just wrap the yarn around your right needle counter-clockwise one time, and knit the next stitch as usual.

You'll still be knitting or purling a stitch after you wrap the yarn around the needle, but count it as the next one you need to do anyway instead of an extra.

That turned out great and congrats on your first wearable! I love the colour too. I can see that going with alot of different colours very nicely. Its cool that it has almost a shine to it. Very nice job.

hey there! I jumped on the capelet bandwagon. here is mine. as with a few of you, this is my first "non scarf, square" project. its nice. i used lion brand homespun in a green lookin color and size 11 needle. i think i did my guaging/measuring wrong, as this will fit someone that is nicole richie's size, not me. but it still looks good i think!

ah, oh well, at least i tried, it just shows i need to try harder.
thanks for lookin!

You must have knit too tight, because with that yarn I made two different sweaters and used 10.5's and my sweaters came out a good size, more on the loose side and I'm no Nicole Richie. But you look like you didn't do as many increase rows...that's probably why. I had 14 on the first one and 12 on the second. Still...it looks nice, and comfy. I LOVE Homespun!
