Julsey that looks amazing!  I'm currently working on a T-shaped one like guessica suggested.  I might try the Keridiana method, though, too!  Somehow I wasn't so smitten with the UO one, but yours has totally changed my mind!

julsey723,

I feel a little slow but I don't fully understand how you got the cast on #.

I measured across the shoulders (like for the OSW pattern) and added 3-4 inches, then used that number for the back and sleeves.  I doubled that # for the CO amount.  I also wanted to begin and end the k2p2 rib rows on a k2 so that the seams fit together better.

Ok so I used the 20 inches measurement across the back, now do I add that number 2 more times for the back and sleever or just once.

I just don't get how you got the 218...could you break it down for me. Please. tia!

thanks for the compliments guys!

lasandri...yes.  I did iron it!  You can't block acrylic, and I heard from the folks who visited Urban Outfitters that the back section looked ironed flat.  It didn't do anything except stretch out the rib section (wich I wanted to!) and flatten the ends of the rows.  I didn't iron the 2x2 ribbed sections.

vsuangel86 - the CO amount was this:

20" across the back x 5.5 st/in= 110st (for the back/sleeve section).  Multiply by 2 = 220 for the 2x2 rib.  I CO 218 instead, because I wanted to begin and end on a k2.  Hope that helps!

Thanks ctgirl!  Here's what I did  I'm a 36" chest, so this is what worked for me.  My gauge was about 5.5 st/in in mock rib, so I measured across the shoulders (like for the OSW pattern) and added 3-4 inches, then used that number for the back and sleeves.  I doubled that # for the CO amount.  I also wanted to begin and end the k2p2 rib rows on a k2 so that the seams fit together better.

CO 218 on size 9 needles.
work in k2p2 rib for 5 inches
k2tog, p2tog 1 row (109 st)

continue in mock rib pattern, which is: k1,p1 rib 1 row, next row: (p1, sl1 with yf) until end of row. Work mock rib for 20 inches

next row: m1k, k1, m1p, p1 until end of row (218 st)
work in k2p2 rib for 5 inches, BO all st.

I seamed the edges together as keridiana showed in her diagram, but continued an additional 4 inches into the mock rib pattern to create cap sleeves. I also "ironed the crap out of it" in the mock rib sections before seaming to flatten the st at the edges to make the arm holes lay flat.  I think the UO folks forgot to do that, as their edges look really ragged.

Good luck!



could you explain your mock rib pattern?

so row 1: k1 p1 for the entire row? 
row 2:  p1 sl1 yo ?  I read somewhere that yf = yo, but I'm not sure.

Francey, this is what i did for mock rib:

RS rows: k1p1 until the end of the row
WS rows: p1, sl next stitch with yarn in front, as if to purl.  don't yo. Continue alternating these 2 stiches until the end of the row.  Make sure you're purling the purls and slipping the knits so the RS still looks like 1x1 rib.  The reverse looks different.

Hope that helps!

julsey723, I think I love you!

I've been wanting to make one but was feeling too lazy to figure out the measurements...  but this is now officially on my list!  (I'm not going to bother trying to finish it for fall, I'll just finish it for spring.  hopefully they'll still be popular!)
