I'm still deciding what size to make, either medium or large.  I don't want it to be skin tight since the yarn is so bulky, but I don't want it to be huge either.  I usually wear a size medium and my chest is about 36-c.  anyone around that size have any recommendations?

Mine was made for someone with a 36-b chest, and I made the Medium size (effectively).

So I'd suggest the medium.

(I was unable to completely get correct gauge I was 10% down, so I made the large but it measures out to be the same as the medium.)

done!  the body and first sleeved didn't take long but i kinda dilly-dallyed with the second sleeve.  i used two strands of worsted weight yarn held together, one was solid green the other was variegated.  it was a little too wide and short  so i washed it and when i laid it out the sleeves had grown 10 inches   Undecided  so i threw it in the dryer for a few minutes and now its smaller and pretty fuzzy (like being in the beginning stages of being felted).  now it's pinned on a towel and it LOOKS like it'll be ok once it's dry.  i hope i didn't ruin it...

well my pics aren't working so you can check it out on my blog.  it's in the very beginning stages so its very boring and doesn't have much on it.  please don't make fun of it  Tongue

Ruminator,

Your Leaf Pullover turned out perfectly! You should be so proud... I think yours fits you much better than the sample. She's swimming in hers and yours looks just right. Well done! Smiley

Rumminator yours does look great!! Well done!

Mine is done blocking & after 2 tries & 3 hours of grafting I think it looks great!!



After looking at the picture I see I missed weaving in an end (in the sleeve). Mine was done in Rowan Polar in "Red Hot" and took 5 skeins for the smallest size. It is a completely different fit than in the book but I love it so much more this way!

Rumminator and worthwhilegirl,
Both your sweaters look awesome and I love the colors that you chose.  I also like the snugger fit that you guys have done compared to the one in the book.  I hope mine turns out as well as yours did.  I just cast on mine last night!
