Prunille: I have yet to see LdL  Sad , so I'm not sure how she has the ballet sweater in there, but I quickly perused my IK pattern for you, and here is a bit of the sleeves instructions: I think you could just keep extending the existing sleeves until they measure 4", then there is 1 dec at both sides of center underarm  (ssk, k2tog)-work 5 rnds even. repeat 6 rows 4 times (this is pretty much the same for all sizes), work straight until sleeves measure 15". Then there are a few k1f&b increases to shape the cuff and that's it Smiley .
onemorehour- your sweater is gorgeous! I haven't liked the shaping in the center until I saw yours. Thanks for the inspiration!

Oooh, great thread. I've had this book for a while (got it as a gift from my secret pal!) but have yet to make anything from it. I love the ballet top, but cap sleeves do me no favours - I had completely forgotten that the long sleeved version was published in IK!

I think my first project from the book itself will be the lace leaf pullover - Knitpicks has a new cashmere blend yarn called Panache that looks like it will probably be pretty close gauge-wise. The balls are small - only 68 yards - so I'll need 10 or 11. At $6.99 a ball it won't be the cheapest thing ever, but the yarn sounds really luscious and it comes in awesome colors!

Hmm, now that I think of it, Panache might be a good bet for the ballet top as well!

WHAT is the secret pal thing, I so want in on that.

Secret Pal is a swap thing for knitters/crocheters.  Everyone gets assigned someone to spoil, and then someone different spoils them.  It runs over a 3-month period, you can send little stuff monthly or more often, or one big package at the end, or whatever you want.  The gifts (incl. shipping) should total a minimum of $50 and can be yarn or anything at all that's knitting related or is something your pal would like (candles, treats, anything at all).  When the 3-month session starts up, you post answers to a big-ass questionaire on your blog so your spoiler gets a good idea of what you'll like (having a blog is a requirement for joining). 

They're taking sign-ups for Secret Pal 6 right now at http://secretpalsix.blogspot.com/ (deadline is Sept. 3).

It's a lot of fun -- go sign up STAT!   Grin

Hi! Somebody e-mailed me to get the modifications for the hybrid Steek Tank that I made (in the first post of the thread). I forgot to write it down and now that months have passed, I don't really remember much. Here's what I do remember:

First, it's actually a mix between the "Yoke Vest" and the "Steek Tank." I didn't use the ballet tee pattern at all. Another thing I did was hold 2 worsted weight yarns together to get gauge.

Basically, you cast on the number of stitches the pattern calls for in the Yoke Vest. You proceed to make the shaping in the front and back as the pattern calls for. Then, once it measures about the same as the ribbing from the steek tank, you begin to substitute the steeks from the steek tank for the shaping in the yoke vest. From then on, you are working on the steek tank.

The sleeves came from the Yoke Vest. Once you get it long enough (I made mine extra long), you begin the sleeve shaping from the Yoke Vest while continuing to make the YO Steeks from the steek tank.

Hope that helps!

Illanna
