I'm months behind on posting this (actually a whole year!), but here is my Tubey that I made last February:

I figure most of you have finished these by now, but I just thought I'd ask... Wink

I think I'd like to try this as my first sweater. However, I think I want to make some slight alterations. I'm wondering about the part where you start up the 2nd half of the shrug from the provisional CO stitches. Doesn't that give a noticeable line on one shoulder where the stitches go in opposite directions? I can't seem to find a clear picture of the back anywhere.

I'm thinking about just knitting one long rectangle for the shrug instead, then seaming up the two sides, leaving a 19" gap in the middle (I'm 99% sure I'll need the XS). I really hate bell sleeves, so I can't really see any reason not to do it this way to produce two straight sleeves, but I might be totally wrong! Or would that look really odd because the stockinette would be right-side-up on one sleeve, and upside-down on the other? I guess I can always make it 60" across and 10" tall. Wink

thanks =)

Actually, it doesn't leave a line at all! I thought it might do that also, but it's actually really smooth. So don't worry about it, although whatever works for you, works for you. As far as the bell sleeves go, all you have to do is not do the increases in the sleeves, and they'll stay straight. (Me, I made mine short-sleeved anyway.)

The more I thought about it, the more I was thinking... DUH. The little V's go upside down & right side up! I guess that's what happens when you post while your brain is trying to explode in your skull. Ow.

I really need warm, long sleeves (currently 18F), so I can't wait to give this a go.

Thanks! =)

My LYS had a huge sale yesterday, and I picked up a bunch of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran for 50% off. Ten balls rust, two cream, and three brown. So, browsing around the internet looking for inspiration I bumped into Tubey and this KAL.   Seeing all the photos of finished Tubeys is so inspirational! I'm a bit late, but look forward to posting my progress Smiley

Funny thing, though -- this is the very yarn called for in the pattern,  but I need a US #2 needle, not a US #8, to get the required gauge.  Am I the loosest knitter on the planet?  Crazy.


Mary wished to say something very sensible, but knew not how.

Shaping is unnecessary here as the sweater is a very stretchy 4x1 rib and will conform to your body.

Making it in St st with shaping would be marginally more complicated, but not much more.

My website is coming together nicely! Please send me feedback, as I don't know how well it works on systems other than mine.

Also, I have a blog at  http://neglectedblog.blogspot.com/
