I'm doing the textured tunic with side buttons, and I have a silly question! On the shoulder where you have that keyhole bit, it doesn't have any directions as to button holes. They have pretty big buttons on the one in the book, so it obviously needs a hole to go through.  I did have the thought of 'why not just sew the 2 bits together and then sew the button on the top', but it seems to defeat the purpose of starting the pattern off flat, unless theres really no way of getting the hole there otherwise?!

Any ideas?

I think it wouldn't be hard to modify the pattern to add a one-row button hole (see video instruction on http://knittinghelp.com/knitting/advanced_techniques/), but the shoulder might not need to be a working button.  Huh

ohhh nice cropped cardigan!!

i looked through my book and i am really drawn to the keyhole neck blouse..  its not usually something i would wear but its calling to me...

i also think im going to knit one of the cropped tops too...

oh for the blouse think lion brand cotton ease would be a good substitute? i have been dying to use it since my michaels here finally carries it....

i hope so!

Your cropped cardigan looks great! I'm about to start working on the turtleneck tube vest and I'm very excited.

Here's my modified version of the Textured Tunic from the book cover.
It's my third project from the book, and I'm planning to make more!

That is awesome.  I love the color and the texture.

Dang girl your quick...you make me feel like a slacker. I've had a bunch of other projects under my belt lately and Im sad to say that my poor wrap cardigan has been sitting on my bedroom floor neglected. Tomorow I'll be taking it along to  a knitting group and hopefully get something accopmlished. The body and sleeves knit up so quick, but the mere thought of knitting over 100 inches of wrap around is a tad daunting.

Yuvee your tunic is AMAZING.
i love the texture of that piece. honestly, the texture of the image on the cover is what first drew me into the book..and then i read all the online reviews and of course bought it.
question, i'd say i'm an intermediate beginner. i only have 4 projects under my belt and none of them are a sweater. i want to jump into the  puffed sleeve cardigan, but i read that the cozy v neck pullover is a good first sweater knit.  any advice?  i could use the pratice i knoooow...but i heart me some puffed sleeve cardigan.

and am i the only one who is loving the coquette lace tube top, i havent seen much mention of it anywhere...?

Whiskey_pumpkin, I don't see how the puff-sleeved cardigan is much harder than than the v neck pullover really. Except for the lace chart, everything else is just about the same principle.
I love the coquette tube too, but I doubt it'll look good on me Wink

awesome, you settled it for me yuvee!  puff-sleeve cardigan here i come.   Grin

my only thing with the coquette tube is that you'd have to wear a tube underneath i think unless you really feel like showing off your *stuff* haha
