FANTASTIC job everyone who finished this! i am really impressed with the ingenuity of the entire project- hooray for reverse engineering! these are also the nicest examples of using super-cheap yarn and coming out with something exceptional.

can someone help with the following please?

it seems like each one is dramatically smaller than the origional version. I know there has been some discussion on how to lengthen/widen it, but how would one go about making it the SAME size as the origional? as in- big enough to make for a nice folded shawl collar and long enough to touch, say, the top of the pants in the back-

thanks so much.

just knitting more ribbing would be one solution.  just knit quite a bit longer on each side of the ribbing, and maybe don't knit as much in the other pattern (basically you want to only be seaming the ribbing, none of the other stuff).  that should do it.

kategirl-Thanks for the suggestion.....I had actually thought about that, but I ended up frogging it anyways.  I am about 4 inches into the mock rib already, so it went pretty quick.  Yeah for my new job and public transportation!

oh goodness...

I am so excited about this project! I stumbled across it and fell in love with it.
The only thing is... I think it is too wide.... I am using Keridiana's pattern and I did 210 sts on the size 9 needles.... but the width looks like it might be enormous.

It measures about 22-24" across.... about how wide was everyone else's? Maybe it just won't be a short sweater... it might just have to be long....  Roll Eyes   You guys used worsted weight yarn too right? harrumph....

Don't forget to take into account - after you do your 2x2 rib, you'll decrease all that in half.

I have already done about 4 inches of the mock rib stitch and did decrease my stitches by half.

I found that CO 180 sts works for me.  What yarn are you using?

Adriafil just posted a pattern like this on their site.

http://www.adriafil.com

It's actually under the Mississippi Waistcoat pattern. It has sleeves.

Ooo...these are all over the place right now!  That Adriafil pattern is cute!  I just bought some grey Simply Soft and hope to get started this weekend. 

I saw these on the Free People site (somebody posted a link to a different sweater on the other knitting board and they have suuuuuch cute sweaters)...

Kit Yarn Cocoon Cardigan

Boho Sparkle Crop Cardigan

Any ideas on how one would adjust the Circular Shrug to fasten on one side rather than the middle like the Cacoon Cardigan?  I think one side is actually longer.  Maybe just more ribbing?

Wow Karissa - cute cardigans (shrugs?)!!  I think the first one does just have longer ribbing - I like how it overlaps like that.  Does the body somehow look longer but not wider, too??  As in, longer from shoulder to waist, but not correspondingly wider around the body?  Hmmm....sounds like a job for the Craftster deconstruction crew!

And the second one reminds me of Lion Brand landscapes yarn - very cute. 

I'm about 5" into the mock rib, and am hoping to finish the thing in the next couple of days.
