I'll have to take a look at the Pingouin pattern, I can speak Portuguese, though my reading is terrible.

Gap maternity has a similar sweater as well, but the arms are 3/4 length and it's a different cable along the yoke. I was tempted to buy it, but I think I'll download the pattern and see if I can do this in a dk yarn.

Lisacb, how did the Cotton Ease work with the pattern? Is it heavy? I was thinking about doing another Rusted Root and I LOVE Cotton Ease. I might have to pick up some tomorrow at Michaels.

I thought the Cotton Ease was ok, it felt a bit rough and there is some slight weight to it but I really like the end result.  I wonder about it stretching over time though, I think if I was to do it again I'd probably use the cotton fleece which has wool (which I assume would help keep some shape)

Yours turned out great!

I finished mine about a week ago, I used Lion Brand Cotton Ease in Maize, 3 full skeins and a small amount of the 4th for the medium size. To get gauge I used a 3.25mm needle but I changed to 3.0mm throughout the torso up to the hips where I then changed back to 3.25mm. The sleeves have some pouf, though I'm wondering if maybe the heavyness of the cotton and the slight lax in my ribbing is what is keeping them down. I think if I had made a few decreases to the ribbing or used a 2.0mm needle it would be tighter around the arm and help keep the pouf up. Overall, I'm really pleased with the end result.

Cynder--I'm using Cotton Ease in Maize and I've gotten gauge on 3.25mm wooden circs.

So far I'm only on row 40, I was hoping to have this finished by months end but I'm not sure that's going to happen.

Everyone's Rusted Roots look great!

Nice work everyone! I'm working on these using Fleece Artist merino in various shades of pink and red.
