Back as promised, with a photo:

When I first finished, my capecho was a lot like yuvee's but not quite as big. The back was a little tight and short, and then in the front I had the weird long dangling excess that kept bunching up oin my armpits. So I tried to block it to be wider and longer in the back and shorter in the front. After blocking, it was just too damn big all over! I then threw it in the drier for about 10 minutes, and after I took it out and tried it on again, I felt pretty satisfied with the fit- a little longer in the back and not so bunchy/bulky in the front.

My modifications: I used dk yarn (filatura di crosa "zara") on size 5 needles. I also moved the button over so that it buttons about 4 inches from the end of the neckband and added a smaller second button to secure the band.

Here is a closeup of the neckband. You can barely see the second button because it is snuggled up inside a cable.
A couple more photos, including one of the back, are on my blog: http://anothershopgirl.blogspot.com
how much yarn did you use and did you switch the gauge fora smaller size? because i'd like to use that yarn, just confused.

Wowee Squeaky!!!  That is beautiful!  It's so super cutie!  I love it!  I'm working on my sleeves just now, and I love the way you added the cable at the bottom part.  Super cute!  I'm using a very similar color.  It's Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran, I don't know the color number it's on the slip, but I don't have it right next to me right now.  Shocker, because I'm working on this thing furiously.  I'm hoping my small adjustments will make it work.  Yours is just lovely. 

so soon

Hi. I've been knitting this too and only posted a couple of comments.

After someone else said they had emailed Vogue knitting but hadn't gotten a reply, I emailed them too. I thought maybe they needed to know there were a lot of us having problems with this thing being too huge. Well, I got an email back asking me to describe in more detail the problem I was having.

I'm finding that hard to do. I'm not done yet (on the first sleeve) and I don't get the whole layout of it enough to know I have it right when I try it on along the way.

Can anyone help explain it for me? Or would it be ok to give her a link to this discussion?


(sorry if this post appears twice. It disappeared the first time I tried before I finished it. I think it got lost in space, but who knows...)

I have finally finished!  I had to modify my capecho as it was much too big.  I removed pentagons 1, 9, 7 and 8, I'm really pleased with it now, I just need to buy a button to fasten it.  I haven't taken a photo of me wearing it yet but the fit is really good, I'm just so glad its finished! Smiley (I'll post a picture of me wearing it when I've put the button on)
