Thanks for all the compliments on my BFC. Now I need some help on my Groovy Sweater Dress.

I am on the repeat of rows 1-10. I did the first decrease round and am row on row 3, ready to do the next set of decreases. I have markers on each side of each sleeve (so 4 markers total). Decreases occur on each side of the marker. Problem is the decreases now start to cut into the 16 sts of the bobble vine repeat. Wahhhhh! The pattern of course does not mention this. So if have either made a terrible error or I am just supposed to guess how that is going to work out.

Please help me! I am so close to finishing!

finally got some pics of my karate sweater.  quite different from the pics in the book - a small is REALLY small in this pattern.  More like  shrunken cardie than a nice cozy sweater.  I think I will give it another try in a large, and use the correct size needles this time (last time I had my 17s in the 19 package.)

bubilina, i looove the colour of your karate sweater! you've got me all worried now though because i'm working on a karate sweater right now ... :S

the size 35 needles are also soo awkward to knit with -- it knits up fast, but i actually knit really slow lol.

I've been following this thread since the beginning and finally have something to show! I just finished the Twinkle Hoodie this weekend.

I made the sleeves longer and skipped the pockets but otherwise followed the pattern. The buttons I made using plastic mesh like material, interfacing and small knit squares since I couldn't find any in the right color or price range.

It's super warm and I'm sure will become one of my favorite winter wears.

I love the hoodie! What yarn did you use?

cvpham, that's so clever that you knitted the buttons! I want to keep that in mind for future Twinkle projects that require buttons. The hoodie looks fabulous and I'd also like to know what yarn you used.

Thanks for the compliments! I used two balls (skiens? I never know the right term) of Lion Brand A Pound of Love in Denim, quadruple stranded. Two balls was plenty for size medium.

To quadruple strand two balls I first made a double stranded ball with the end on the outside (not the center pull) with half the balls. Then I found the center pull and worked the pattern from the double stranded ball and the two center pulls (I put all the balls in a large plastic bag so they wouldn't roll around and get tangled). It does take some time to wind the balls but I think it was worth it for the cost.
