This is beautiful - I love the bobbles on the front. You've fitted it really well, too!

I think it would be fun to try with buttons joining the arm-warmers to the sweater, as a sort of modular top!

Thank you Smiley

It does call for buttons, 6 of them. I just haven't gotten them yet Cheesy

Super Duper cute- love the matching armwarmers! Question, How well do they stay up?

Thanks  Smiley
Without the buttons they stay up pretty well, but I did slouch them down a little bit.

Just wanted to share my latest project. I absolutely love this sweater! It's very versatile. I used Knit Picks Telemark Yarn in Brass Heather, made this in a size Small with a few mods to it - more on my ravelry - http://www.ravelry.com/projects/ImNotTarded/camden

I thought that if I hand washed the sweater it wouldn't felt, and I've never done felting before so I didn't know. I put it in the dryer on medium heat for an hour, in a laundry bag and it felted a little but the waist/ribcage and shoulders fit a lot better, it was incredibly loose before even with the bust fitting tightly, really weird fit even with the mods I made (I calculated all the measurements and noticed only the XS had a defined waistline...usually that is opposite). I haven't washed/dried the sleeves yet because I finished those after washing the body so they're still a bit loose, and I do need to get some buttons for it but otherwise it's finished Grin And felting actually made the yarn a bit softer so it's really comfy now, not as soft as the Alpaca probably woud have been, but I don't have an Alpaca budget, lol!

Amazing work, I love your knock-off!  Don't you love working with Cotton Ease?!

Thanks! Grin

I love Cotton Ease. For being half acrylic it feels really nice, probably one of my favorite yarns from LB.

Gorgeous!!! I really like that green color and it makes the space look a lot bigger. Nice job!

i love the VS knockoff and I'm excited to make my own, thanks for the pattern!!
I was reading over it though and as you do short row shaping at the end of each row it says, w&t.  Does that mean wrap and turn?  What does it mean to wrap a stitch?  Is that the same as a yarn over?  I'm still kind of new to a lot of knitting techniques.  thanks for any help. 

Yes, wrap and turn. On the inside of the sweater this will fall on a Knit stitch:
Work to point specified in pattern, bring yarn to front of work between needles, slip next stitch to right-hand needle, bring yarn around this stitch to back of work, slip stitch back to left-hand needle, turn work to begin working back in the other direction.

For the Purl stitch on the right side of your work do the same but leave the yarn in back.

I have a question about your pattern - Thanks for posting it, by the way!  I've already cast on! Doesn't seed stitch have to be an odd number to work in the round? I just want to make sure I'm not making a huge mistake...

No, it's an even number, just like the ribknit on top, you start and end with a k1, p1 and alternate it for the next row.
The only section that will have an odd amount of stitches (just a heads up) is when you split your work and put the front on hold, so the shoulder seams will have a knit stitch on the edges.

I'm so excited you've started it already! I hope it comes out nice Smiley
