Yeah..that's a lovely color! I'm so tempted to knit another one of this is different color this year, but I already have so many stuffs working on..I think I should be satisfied through watching other people making them in other colors here... Cheesy

I finally finished mine!

Another photo

And another photo

I love this pattern. Like someone else has said before, this is my favorite thing I've ever knit. My row gauge was probably off because the bodice came out shorter than the other sweaters. I might try grafting on another inch of ribbing to the bottom to make it longer (or I could wear jeans with higher waistlines...). Other than that, I'm super happy.  Grin

Thanks for making the pattern, Calista.

Wow its gorgeous, stylish stuff like this is what makes me want to learn how to knit. I would pay for something like that and in those colors!

Hey Landry, you've done it!
I'm glad that you like the pattern.
Indeed it looks shorter than other ones.
As you said, the row gauge might have been different.
I know one way to fix this.
Cut of the ribbing part carefully along the first low of the aran part with sharp-ended scissors, and pick up sts as you do when you take off the temporary CO rows. Then, decrease the increased sts, and simply knit 2x2 rib until you get desired length. Then bind off with tapestry needle.

Finally finished and I love it! This is by far my favouritest knit to date, thanks for the great pattern Calista. Knitting the body in the round certainly made it a lot quicker to knit and cut down on tedious seaming. I used Bendigo Woollen Mills 8ply Alpaca in Briar Rose. It's so soft and warm but sheds like crazy so I might give it a good bath to see if that settles the fibres down. More details on my blog.

Hey, Anky!
Finally! Yours is done! I love the color selection.
I'm glad to see that it fits you very well.

I am itching to get started...just a couple of questions Smiley
I am a 36 inch bust...what size do you think I should go for?Huh?

Also considering knitting in the round...what does PM mean in the instruction line by almndladybug mean?Huh...

"PM after 88, (92, 98, 102) sts."

Gorgeous pattern and so lovely seeing a designer being so hands-on with advice Smiley

PM means place marker, something to indicate that you've done those number of stitches.
