Girls, count me in!!
i just ordered from knitpicks, can't wait to start on this one!!

i purchased the mystery too. can't go wrong with black  Cheesy
i'm thinking to lengthen the 2x2 ribbing for both wasit and sleeve
calista, mind giving me a rough measure of your sweater?

Here's a diagram with the size of each part.

The size on the image is base on the XS size.
If you want to make the rib of the bodice wider, I suggest to remove 1 repeat of the pattern from the bottom and cast on the 6 sts less.
Since the bodice is already quite long, it might be too long if you just add more rows of ribs.
I wanted to make it long enough to fully cover my tummy even when I'm wearing a really low jeans. (because my body is always cold)
Making ribs on the sleeves will be alright.

the flowers will have to wait until I can dye up some to go along with the sweater... but otherwise, I'M DONE! yay! Calista, your pattern is my very first full-length sweater!

I ended up using 2 full skeins of wool-ease and only a tiny bit of the third for the medium size. The reverse stockinette seaming really wasn't as bad as I thought it would be... Calista was right. It is quite forgiving.

Okay, I can't contain my excitement, so here's the pic of my FO (back view to prevent weird shot of my boobs):


Props go out to Calista for a wonderful pattern!

lazynono7, if you look at the high resolution charts decreasing / increasing methods are written at the edge of each rows.

I just ordered some yarn from KnitPicks for the sweater in Mystery because I'm a lemming and love how it looks in the black.  Wink
