Are you on Ravelry, and if you are, have you added this pattern? And if you're not, can I add it, with proper credit, of course? I am making one and I'd like to be able to link to it.

How big is a two year old's head?! Do I make an adult size or a baby size?

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Making a sweater without knowing measurements on: March 19, 2008 02:05:46 PM
I would like to make a sweater for my mom for Christmas but she lives far away so I can't snoop through her clothes and I would like it to be a surprise so I can't ask her. She is a tricky shape though; depending on the brand I have seen her wear anything from a 2 to a 10. She's probably a 6 or an 8 on average, she just has to bump up sometimes because she's "well endowed". I didn't inherit her boobs so I don't know how to work with knitting around them...

Anyway, this is a roundabout way of asking what type of sweater I should make. I was thinking a wrap sweater, but I wanted some feedback about whether this would be appropriate for her body type and how to guess the right size to knit.

I was thinking of knitty's IVY http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall06/PATTivy.html
but I'm not quite sure I'm ready for the world of cables...

I have a ridiculous passion for bamboo. More enviromentally friendly and the longer you use them the more "broken in" they get. I also find that they are the best combo of slippy/grippy. (does that make sense?) They just feel right.

Do they make that awful wood rubbing against wood noise? It's one of my pet peeves and I'm afraid bamboo needles will drive me up the wall.

No worries, mine looked kinda mushroomy too, it all works out in the end.

Thanks for the help. I managed to figure this out last night except my count came out kind of weird. If I am supposed to bind off 6, what do I do with that last stitch on the right needle?
Also, it says to do the back "in pattern"... but which one!

CRAP i wish I had read this thread better before starting. I didn't know that charts in the round are different... no wonder my lower body doesn't look as good as the ones here.... do I frog?

I am working on the neckline and this is coming up and I am not sure what much of it means:

Divide for Armholes:
Next Row [Row 15 of Neckline Decrease Chart, RS]: Work 14[17, 17, 20, 23, 26, 29] sts in pattern, k2[2, 3, 2, 1, 1, 1] and place these 16[19, 20, 22, 24, 27, 30] sts on hold for Right Front, BO 6[6, 6, 6, 8, 8, 8] sts, work 38[44, 48, 50, 54, 60, 66] sts in pattern (39[45, 49, 51, 55, 61, 67] sts on right needle), working selvedge sts in stockinette st, and place these sts on st holder for Back, BO 6[6, 6, 6, 8, 8, 8] sts, k1[1, 2, 1, 0, 0, 0] (2[2, 3, 2, 1, 1, 1] sts on right needle), work in pattern to end. 16[19, 20, 22, 24, 27, 30] sts.

Here's my progress pic, did anyone else's look so... mushroomy at the bottom?

I guess it is worth mentioning that I have started this. I am 15 rows into the waist. It's my first sweater, so far so good. I am using acrylic (Vanna's Choice in purple) because I don't want to go buy nice yarn for my first sweater and find out that it sucks. Hopefully everything will fit/drape alright/not need blocking.
