Oh! Thanks so much Emms! If I wanted my sleeves to be closer to the wrist would I measure from the edge of my shoulder to the wrist to figure out how long to make it?

No, you don't need to do that at the start... when you are making it, you will be putting the live sleeve stitches on scrap yarn, and finishing the rest of the sweater first, so after you finish the body part, you can try it on, and decide on the sleeve length then. This will make more sense when you are making it...

Oh ok! That does make more sense hehe. Is it bad that I haven't even bought the yarn for this yet but I bought the shirt I want to wear under it??

Yes you are terrible. LOL

Is anyone else making this in worsted? I figured out the difference, and I'm working on my own right now. I made one in bulky weight and it looks *really bad* on me, so I'm trying again.

Okay, I am extremely embarrassed to admit this, since I have already completed one of these, about 6 months ago! But I'm going back to do my 2nd one and I cannot seem to figure out the raglan increases this time around! Do you do a full (360-degree) wraparound on the YOs, or just move the yarn from front (purl position) to back (knit position) before making the purl stitch? I've frogged several rows of increases 3 times now, since the raglan holes just aren't working out. When I get to the knit row, I'm having difficulty figuring out which "stitches" to knit and it gets all messy.

Could anyone set straight a knitter who clearly has no pattern memory?

Thank you!

I still have problems with yo's even after making 5 of these.  I always go back and look at this picture:

punkrockmom - I'm SO glad you decided to make this (to wear with the fabulous dress right?)  I hope it works for you... please post pics (with the dress) when you get done.  I was going to start it today, but I'm a little worried about trying it with the worsted weight yarn I was planning on using.  What yarn did you get for yours?

im using two strands of classic elite posh 30% cashmere 70% silk- it feels like a dream!! 
im having trouble trouble with keeping my stitch markers in place, i usually prefer my lock shaped ones, but i think the trandition circle ones would work better here- i tryied cuttinga  straw but it wasnt wide enough.  im planning on swiping a smoothie straw from the gym since  they are wider!
how about you are you knitting this now too?
