This pattern is by far my most used baby pattern. I made one for my little cousin out of one skein of LB Jiffy yarn (on sale for $1.44 at Hobby Lobby). I used the customized version from the lovely ongoing KAL thread. It knits up so nice and quick definitely an instant gratification knit.

I'm going to make another one of these soon.  I've got a little Rowan Polar left in the stash.  I do want to modify it a bit, maybe to make the front come a little closer together, so I'll be going back through this thread looking for ideas.  Dair, yours looks great!

To make the fronts a little wider, cast on a few more stitches, and allocate the extra ones to the front, rather than distribute them evenly around. Or you could also increase along the front edge, but that would make more of a V neck.

i just finished my second one... (didn't post pictures of the first, so don't go hunting for pics)

the first one i made was per pattern and it barely covered my ample chest and didn't fit my back right. so i made a second one using some modifications based on some measurements taken from me wearing the original.

The yarn is Berella Whistler. I made mine longer.

I like the longer length... very nice.  I bet you'll get a lot of wear out of it!

I like to verb words. It weirds the language.

I finished this a few months ago, but just got around to taking a picture of it.  I used Bernat Solo (the acrylic is too HOT for summer!) and knitted it down to a full sized-sweater, with crocheted ties at the middle.  I think I should have started the ribbing at the bottom a little lower -- maybe I'll go back and fix it sometime.  maybe not.


I just cast-on last night with the exact same yarn! The color's "lichen," right?  This is beautiful all knit up.  I like the mods, too.

I'm sure this has been asked and answered but there's now 70 pages to this thread!

I want to make this in some Noro yarn I have in my stash... my swatch gives me 5 st/inch on size 9 needles.  So I should cast on 80 right (assuming 16 inch neckline)?  How do I make sure it's big enough in the bust?   

thanks!

I did cast on 79 (someone mentioned using an odd number) which seems to work.  When it's time to start the increases, what's the best way to divide my stitches?  I was thinking 12-10-35-10-12  Does that make sense???  Will that give me the right proportions?

I think you will have too many on the back if you do it that way. The pattern says to divide by 6 so you would have 13-13-26-13-14 (the odd one gets tacked on to the end).

The reason for the odd number is so the 1 stitch between the yarnovers lines up with the ribbing around the neckband - however in order for that to happen each section except the last needs to be an even number so you would have to go up or down an couple of stitches.

If you aren't opposed to stating over I would suggest casting on 81 then breaking it down to 14-12-28-12-15.

The PDF pattern explains it a little better.
