I did the size I thought I would be and it was way too big.  I started over in a smaller size.  I lost pretty much all of the poof in my sleeves, but I thought it was due to my broad shoulders...  Could you make the top for one size and then decrease so that the body is a smaller?

Thanks, jesdmill, on the advice about blocking to keep the sleeves poofy.  Other people also wrote about making the sleeves one size bigger, but I am afraid the sleeves will be too big.  Maybe I will try one way and see if it works!

I'm glad other people are still knitting this-- i'm just getting around to it.  I'm almost done with the yoke and sleeves, and am using Cascade's Sierra (also 80% cotton/20% wool).  Everyone's advice about sizing is really helpful, and you all look wonderful in your finished ones!

I second that, tilliev.  I've been following this KAL since the beginning, but only just cast on last weekend. 

Using knitpicks main line in dusty lavendar.  Very nice color, but I"ve heard mixed reviews about the yarn.  Also, I'm knitting it really tightly to get gauge, so I hope it's not too stiff. 

I made the neck a little deeper and am leaving off the sleeve poofs (just not a poofy sleeve kind of gal) and doing elbow length sleeves I think.

Hope it all works out, because I love this sweater!  (Obviously it's all about the lace for me rather than the poofs  Smiley)

I'm planning on making this one soon.  What can I say, I'm a late bloomer. Grin

I'm starting this one tonight, for my sister. I'm using Knit Picks Merino Style in Moss (her choice.)  So, the M1 in the first row, does it slant right or left? Or does it matter?

I'm about to get started on this too.  Fashionably late as usual Wink  I'm sort of a newbie and I'm wondering if anyone can tell me what skills you need to do this.  Thanks!

i would really like to make one. what level of difficulty would you say this is? what kind of techniques would i need to know? i consider myself intermediate, but i have never knitted a sweater.

Hi ladies and gents,

I know no one has posted in here in a while, but hopefully someone is still reading. So here's my dilemma... ROW 3.

I casted tonight and row 3 has me totally stuck. I've done lace before, but never run into a k1, yo, p1 sequence before.

The pattern says: K1, YO, K1, k2tog, P1, slip 1, K1, psso, K1, YO, P1, yo, K1, slip 1, k1, psso, p1, k2tog, k1, yo, k1

but when I get to the second P1 wouldn't my yarn already be in front from the yo?  I know a bunch of people have made this sweater so there has to be an easier solution then the things my brain is telling me to do.

I checked out the q&a on the website but when I do what it says "For that tricky part of row 3: you will hold your yarn to the back and then purl (for the first YO) and then after that purl stitch your yarn is already in the front for the next YO, so you just knit with your yarn already in the front!" it looks like my stitches are twisted on the top of my needle. Does anybody know what i'm doing wrong?

Here's my Rusted Root.  Despite the look on my face, I'm quite happy with this knit.  Easy and fun pattern.  I used Knitpicks Shine Worsted weight in Ebony.
