Hi...
I just ordered my yarn for this (Patons' classic merino, dark green) and I decided to try out the pattern while i wait with some scrap yarn. For some reason the M1P is giving me trouble. I read someone else's post about this, but I'm still confused. Do you pick up the horizontal piece of yarn from the front to back with the left needle? Is it just super hard to purl into the back of that then? ARGH!! It's driving me crazy!
Thanks for any help....

It doesn't actually matter which direction you pick it up.  Just make sure that you purl it twisted.  And yes, it is pretty hard to get your needle in there sometimes. 

Also, my knitting is done, it's all seamed up and now it's blocking!  After that I've just got the ends to weave in and the zipper to install.  I'm pretty stoked to be done.

I lost a bunch of weight, so I restarted this in a smaller size(from XL to L) now I have an extra skein of yarn, which I plan on using for a felted purse... I am totally in love with this pattern, it looks great, and it is working up quite quickly, the pattern is fairly easy for me, even though it looked intimidating at first.

Here are some pics of my progress (I am on the armhole decreases part):




YaY!

i have had my eye on this, but i don't have the booklet yet.  i would probably make whatever size is the 34-36 in chest.  emms, (or anyone else?) do you mind telling me the yardage requirements for the smaller sizes?  I have about 7 skeins of wool ease in dk. grey i bought months ago that may work and i want to see before i go try asnd find the pattern.  (i can't justify buying a whole new sweater's worth of yarn because i have so much already, even if it is wool-ease, but i can wing the $5 for the pattern!)

thanks!

p.s., emms, what happened to your blog?   Sad

Hi erincatherine!

You would make the Medium size (Bust measurement 36", Finished Measurement 41") The yardage requirements are 8 skeins of Patons Classic Merino (100g, 223yds/204m per skein) so that works out to 1784yds/1632m for the whole project. The gauge for Patons Classic Merino is  20 sts - 26 rows = 4" (10 cm) and the gauge for the pattern is the same. I am using Cascade 220 which is perfect gauge wise, but Lionbrand Wool Ease may work, even though the gauge is slightly thicker (18 St sts + 24 rows = 4" (10 cm) on size 8 (5mm) needles). But, you would need to buy another two skeins of the woolease-you only have 1379yds with 7 skeins.

I sent you a pm re pattern.

I deleted my blog, because 1- I don't have enough time to blog anymore as I plan on going off disability; and 2- I needed some privacy, as I am going through a separation from my hubby.

Let me know if you need more help!
