6 for the sleeves (front & back), 11 for the back.

She tells you to divide the co # by 6 to get the # of stitches for the sleeves (again front & back of each sleeve).  Times the co # by 2 for the amount of stitches needed for the back.  You may have to do a stitch adjustment to make the #'s work, which is what I did for ya.

haha.. I couldn't stand seeing all these pretty little capelets.. so I said fuck it! I'm buying yarn!  It should be a fast knit, so I don't feel too bad about having a million projects going at once..

Today I bought two skeins of Lamb's Pride bulky in "onyx" aka black.  I'm trying to get gauge right now.  I'm so excited to finally start on this thing!  Grin

Oh, and has anyone used smaller needles for the ribbing?

I almost bought the onyx on the second-go-around!  Smiley  It should be nice!

As for the ribbing, I wouldn't do smaller needles, as it is just for show, not for function.  Just a thought. 

I think it would look weird if you used the smaller needles. 

Can't wait to see how yours turns out!

Sooooo,
I'm thinking about trying to adapt this pattern into a normal sweater length pullover.  Has anyone tried that, or should I just look for other cute top-down raglan pullover patterns?

Well, damn.  I haven't knitted much of it yet, so it wouldn't be too big of a deal to frog.  I just tried it on around my neck and it fits, but if I were to do it the way most people have, with a brooch in front, it might be a bit snug.  I used US10s then switched to US11s.  I could always do the rib with 10.5 just so it's ribby, but not too ribby.  Thank goodness that I have a small neck.

Just wanted to say that whenever I get this thing finished it will DEFINITELY need a bath.  Last night my hands looked like I had rubbed them all over some newspaper.. and the mohair in the yarn was flying everywhere and making me itch like crazy.  I should have taken some allergy medicine yesterday.. haha

Yep, if you're not too upset about frogging, I would go ahead and start knitting it with the 11's.  Good luck!  Can't wait to see it in onyx.

In my opinion you might want to find another top down raglan pattern, because I cannot close mine (I planned to put buttons down the front). You probably could do the gauge math and add stitches to make it fit, but one you have made 1 top down raglan you have the skills to make another.
