1  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Norah Gauhan cardigan from Vogue Knitting on: February 12, 2007 01:59:04 PM
My gauge was spot on when I did it in stockinette but the size per side when I actually made a pentagon was 4.5 in (not the 5 in as recommended for the XS).  Each time I completed a pentagon, I wrapped it around myself.  After finishing the fifth, it was actually long enough to completely wrap around my shoulders but I couldn't figure out how to move the sleeves around so I made the sixth pentagon and just cinched the collar tighter (the button is way up on the collar, not near the end as in the VK picture). 

I really recommend going a size smaller with smaller pentagons and wrapping it around yourself as you go along.  It was a really satisfying knit but you do have to make some modifications.
