Even though I match the Medium Measurements, I made the large, and it fits perfectly, so you might want to keep that in mind.

Ah, thanks, so go up a size then. mind you every time I makle something it is either much bigger or much smaller than it is meant to be. Possibly cos I'm in the UK therefore never use the right yarn. Mind you I have subbed standard DK for worsted a few times and it has worked fine. I think I might go for the green, it looks really nice.

Your sweater looks great! And so comfy! I'm in the middle of making it, and I've gotten to the top front sizing part and wondered if you could help me out at all. I'm not sure if they count the dc2tog as a V-st, and it's messing up my counts for sizing. I'm on the Upper Right Front part Row 3ish? and I can't get the stitch counts to come out right! I don't know if this makes sense at all, but did you have any problems with this section or how did you work through this part?

Help from anyone would be greatly appreciated!

i bought yarn for the unseamly sweater today. i'm glad i found your finished photo, kixeldorado... you've inspired me to push foward on this project!

i was a bit concerned about the length of the sweater... i'm short waisted and worry that the bottom edge of the sweater will sit too low on my bum.

has anyone tried to eliminate some of the rows at the bottom of the body? i'm thinking a shorter sweater would be a better shape for my bod.

I'm working on this too and wondered about that. I think it should be okay to take out about 5 rows of the bottom V's.

Sizing also seems to be really weird, like it was intended for tiny women.

Your unseamly sweater looks great on you and it looks just as nice without all the trimming!

I started making this sweater for my sister and I had to make a size xlarge to get the medium measurement. She is also having trouble getting the sweater on over her boobs. I am also confused on the same decreasing area as kscline. Are you supposed to decrease 2 vstitches together, or the 2 stitches of the vstitch? Help please?
