Thanks for comments! I'm putting together a sort of worksheet/guide for how to make it (I'm not really a pattern writer), which I hope will help those who want an adult size or have fit preferences. I'll post it once it's done.

I just started this a few days ago and have all the shaping done for the back, so far.

I'm using Sirdar Country Style 4-ply in sage that's been sitting in my stash for too long. I also turned the hem as I went along so I won't have to sew it at the end.
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Cropped cardi... on: February 20, 2007 01:08:17 PM
As inspired by the Gucci cardi posted at knit lit

Pattern: My own
Yarn: KnitPicks Andean Silk
Needles: US7/4.5mm
More details here.

Now I just need to wait for the weather to warm up enough to wear it.

For a bigger size, you would pick up more stitches. How many more depends on how much bigger you want it and how you plan on making it bigger. For the latter, there are two ways I can think of: adding knit stitches to the edges of each repeat of the parachute pattern (if you're going up maybe an inch or two), or working more repeats of the parachute pattern (for a greater sizing change).

Hope this helps and good luck!

I love this sweater, especially the buttons. Great job!
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Button-up sleeves... on: October 10, 2006 02:37:12 PM
The first garment I've knitted without a pattern!

I used about 3.5 balls of Wendy Supreme Cotton DK in "lilac" on US4/3.5mm circular needles. It's basically a bottom-up, seamless raglan with the sleeve construction modified to be "buttoned up." The button bands were picked up and knit in 2x2 ribbing along the length the of sleeves and neck.

More details on the construction can be found on my blog.

For those who are curious, here are photos of the inside of the socks:

Left: leg; Right: sole

If you're working in the round, one tip I've often heard (and use) is to knit with the work inside-out. This helps keeps the tension from getting too tight. Making practice swatches also helps to get used to the technique and to figure out what works best for you.
