For the Yesterknits pattern, you start at the edge marked A in the above diagram (or the opposite end).   You knit your original cast on stitches for a while (length should be upper arm circumference), and then cast on additional stitches (the same number as you originally cast on) to make the wider portion.  When it is the correct length (this corresponds to the width of the back), then you cast off the extra stitches you cast on.  You then finish knitting the piece, and the length should match your first section.  The yesterknits pattern calls for a stitch pattern that is 3 rows stockinette, 3 rows reverse stockinette.  The result looks like ribbing.  I think casting on from a shorter side makes the knitting go faster, and seem much more manageable (shorter rows).

But if you want to CO and knit from the wider side, then you do what the above poster suggested.  There should be no need for cutting the yarn and starting a new piece.

I'd never tried to make my own pattern up before until I saw this at the mall:

http://www.bebe.com/Main/browse_detail.jsp?PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id=845524442545980&FOLDER%3C%3Efolder_id=2534374302796662&bmUID=1123525508467&viewmode=page

I just threw it in the bag last night out of frustration.

You all are the best, looks like I was halfway there!
I'll send a complete photo after I rip half of it out and try again!

THANK YOU!

Here is another pattern that I found from another craftster post. It looks very similar to the original urban outfitters sweater, but the collar is a little smaller. And it might only be available in Australia. But a close match nonetheless.

hmm...Any idea how you would go about ordering the Patons booklets?  I like the looks of that jacket/shrug thing.  The length is nice.

domokun, i've got that patons pattern at home.  Am at work now, but I'm just trying to remember how it's made...I think the back and collar are knitted in two separate pieces (unlike in the yesterknits pattern).  You knit the back (a sort-of circle with armholes), then knit a wide circular band and sew it to the back piece.  Hope you can understand what I'm getting at.  Huh

As I'm in Australia, I'm not certain of the availability of Patons patterns books elsewhere.  Sorry can't be of more help!
