so, my question is, does anyone know by reading the pattern or if you already made it if the instructions are going from the bottom up or the other way around. I don't want to make it a tunic/dress, just a sweater/top length. I was wondering how I could do that without having to knit the entire thing, rip, and reknit?

thanks so much!

It sounds like you cast on at the bottom, since you do waist shaping and then shape armholes and neck. You're supposed to do 4.5 inches of plain stockinette before you start the waist decreases, so you could probably just change that to 1 inch or 2 inches. It would probably still be a longish top though.

aunt carrot- thanks a bunch.

I like the fit of the top, and since I'm the same build as the model, I thought it would be a good knit I would wear a lot. Smiley And i've never done sleeves before, so it would be nice to be able to mindlessley (somewhat) just read a pattern. Maybe i'll just count how many stiches remain and some math...

if i do make it, I'll make sure to post pics.
thanks!

I made this sweater!!  I totally disregarded gauge though, and it actually came out alright!  But I used an acrylic yarn and you can tell it would be much nicer in a higher quality yarn.  :]

meenuh- unless I get heat stroke or win the lottery (and i'm afraid it will be neither, since i wear hats and don't buy tickets) i will be joining you in the fun that is acrylic!

what yarn/ needles did you use? do you have pics? hehe. yes. i'm pretty excited to knit it - i like the silhouette.
