Really beautiful work! Do you have the specific name of that Karabella pattern? That one is my favorite!

Hi, everyone. I recently finished a little dress for my toddler. I've written up the pattern on my blog if you are interested. It's the first time I've tried to write out different sizes, so if you make it, I'd love to get some feedback!

I'm probably overthinking this, but how did you add the length?  Just do more ribbing?  Did it affect the waist shaping at all?  I'm asking because I think yours turned out just perfect, and I have some yarn ordered for my own.  I'd like to "copy" yours (if you don't mind).   Tongue

Thank you, Pretty Cranium! For my size (34"), the schematic calls for the body to be 12-1/2 inches from underarm to the bottom edge. That was just too short for me, so I added just over an inch to this. I added about 1/2" to the bottom ribbing part before decreasing; another 1/2" to the part where you knit it even, after completing the waist decreases; and then a few more rows after the waist increases were done. But that may or may not be the right mods for you body, depending on where you want the bottom to hit on your hips and where your waist is. If you have a sweater or cardigan you wear that you really like, you can take its measurements and see where you want to make your mods. Good luck!

It looks awesome!  About adding the length -- are you tall, or was the original pattern short?

Thanks. No, I'm definitely not tall--only 5'4". The original pattern was too cropped for my taste.

Great cardigan, it fits so nicely and looks lovely on. It's a design I've had my eye on for a while, I'm thinking of making it but as i'm in the UK i think getting my hands on the pattern and correct yarn is going to be tricky, expensive or both!!  please can you tell me the gauge of the yarn so that I can try and track down a yarn sub this end  Grin

Thank you. RubyTuesday, you can get the pattern here, as well as the specs. The original pattern calls for Rowan Felted Tweed, which I'm sure you can get in the UK Smiley

This is my last FO for 2007  Wink ! This Tangled Yoke Cardigan from IK is made from Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool color #48. It was a good pattern, and I enjoyed knitting it--even the stockinette parts. My favorite, of course, was that cable, which is what I fell in love with the first place. The Silky Wool has a nice drape, and I think I will get a lot of wear out of this one. The only modification I made was to add about 2" to the length and also about 1-1/4" to each sleeve, and I'm glad I did.

I've been wearing it unbuttoned or partially buttoned because even though it looks okay from far away when buttoned,

It's pretty obvious when you look closely that there's a lot of gapping. If you have any tips on fixing this on this cardigan or for preventing it in the future, please let me know.

Thanks for looking. I'll be posting more info to my blog http://soknitpickygallery.blogspot.com

Congratulations! That looks really great. And thanks for the tip about the yarn

Here are the last of the Christmas presents I made, all pretty different:

This is Sleepy Sam, from Sandra Polley's book, The Knitted Teddy Bear. He's made from 2 shades of Queensland Collection Kathmandu DK. The main color was only supposed to take 1 ball, but I ran out before I finished the last paw, so I had to buy another ball. Argh!

Second is a felted moebius basket from A Second Treasury of Magical Knitting made from Lion Brand Wool, held double-stranded.

And finally I made this Buddha pillow from Knit1 Spring 2007. It's made with 2 shades of Knit Picks Swish DK and has a fabric backing. If you are interested in the chart, you can get it free at the link below, but I would omit 6 stitches of the "background" from either side so that you end up with a square piece. I'm sorry I don't have a full picture of this one, just a partial shot


Thanks so much for looking! More project specs are on my blog if you want them.

Thank you all very much  Cheesy. To answer the question about yarn...oops! I meant to include that info. I used 7 balls of Jaeger Extra Fine Merino Chunky in 012, Bluebird. It is discontinued, of course, but was still available on eBay last month.
