HI ! I just finished mine and i LOVE IT!! It was SO easy to do - I used size 11, and double strand of Caron Simply soft in "soft blue" color - 1 1/2 skeins .... Took jsut a few days to work up - pretty warm too! I couldnt wait to wear it today! I am in the middle of my 5th month of pregnancy as you can see and this sweater will be excellent to wear over my tank tops as my belly cont. to grow! I am def. going to make more - thanks for the pattern!!!


You look so beautiful pregnant and with the capelet.

I made mine a bit shorter than most of the ones i've seen on here, but it's still hot.

- you may also notice the modified panta.

I used a tape measure. Some folks put everything on scrap yarn to try it on put that is a lot of work in my opinion.

On needles - going in either direction - here's what the markers mean:

edge to first marker = one side of front
first marker to second marker = one sleeve (the part you want to match your upper arm measurement)
second marker to third marker = back of capelet
third marker to fourth marker = other arm (also matches your upper arm measurement)
fourth marker to end = other side of the front

Keep in mind how tight you want your capelet to be - some are quite fitted while others are more relaxed - no right or wrong just what you prefer. Also think about blocking if your yarn is going to need it - that usually stretches it a little bit also.

Don't worry about it not looking like anything on here - once you put the sleeve sections on waste yarn and start knitting the body you will go AH HA now I see it  Smiley.

I might just have to make me one of these!!
What a great "pregnant" project - I wish I would have gotten up the guts to do this project months ago when my bump was still small and cute like that. (now I am about to burst heehee!)

It's so cool to see all the variations of this great pattern!
I made one for my niece for Xmas last year, forgot to take a pic of it before I gave it to her. I will ask her to email me a pic so I can post too!

Cheers,
Miriam
