littleone -- that's how I understood it...  and I actually managed to knit myself a sweater that fit (see "another boobholder" thread for pix).

so- i made the sleeves less pouffy and a little shorter, and i also used bigger wool than was called for...
i was playing with fire, but i like it, so there.

(oh yeah, and i cut that end bit off as well)
and it only took me 2 and a half balls of yarn, and 2 days- yay!

Hey!  Good job!  Your sweater looks great!!!!! 

Pretty gratifying, huh? Especially how you can adapt the sweater to fit your own ideas...

yeah- i really was expecting to have to froggit lots because i was kind of winging it on those sleeves to make them not so pouffy, but so they would still fit around my arms...
and yeah- those initial brain hemorrages i was having...well, i think they were worth it.
thanks for all the help!

Welp, I managed to finish this.  Dare I say it, but this could possibly be the first thing that I've knitted that I will actually wear in public.  When the weather warms up, of course....

I never did quite figure out how many set of increase rows I was supposed to knit after row 21.  I ended up doing about 12 or 13 after row 21.  I just kept trying it on and stopped when I thought it would fit. 

I think that I'll end up getting a li'l sparkly broach to pin it together in front....*ponders*

Wow, thats awsome Trebuchet! Really nice. I was actually thinking of trying this is grey, and now I see it looks very pretty in grey Smiley It looks very nice on you, and I admire your ability to finish so many large projects.
oh, and what yarn did you use btw? Thanks!

Thanks, Tere!   I used Plymouth Encore in this beautiful blue-grey.  I used about a skein and a half.

Hi All,

first time poster. I just learned to knit last month and perhaps I am being a little over-ambitious by making this sweater. After all, this is only my second knitting project..ever. In any case, I need some clarifications. I am up to row 21, and I am supposed to now go back to the regular raglan increases, row 2, row 3 repeats. For those of you geniuses who finished this, could you describe how to make the sleeves less puffy? I read that you just make less increases. Does that mean that you just k5, p to the end, k5, without the m1 at the seams? And that buttonhole, when exactly do I do that? Is it the "body" section mentioned in the instructions right before "For the busty gals"?

Thanks in advance!!
