This is my first knitted thing that I can actually wear (other than scarves and hats and stuff)!  Here is my verision of Glampyre's Ubernatural (pattern here: http://www.magknits.com/chilly04/patterns/uber.htm ).  As you can see, I decided to make it a pull-over instead of button down and the sleeves are shorter than in her original version.  I also had to make the bottom ribbing a good few inches longer to fit my torso.  It was knit with Red Heart Super Saver "flecked" with two strands held together, which I think is pretty funny considering it's supposed to be knit on nice, natural fiber yarn.  I like it a lot though and it was so cheap and fun to make.

Thanks for looking.

That's so pretty! I've been thinking of making the original, but I think I like the pullover style more.

 I love that you changed it to a pullover! That yarn looks great! I've seen it at stores, but have never seen it knitted up. At least in the pictures it seems to look like a "natural" type yarn.  I may have to put this sweater on my list. Great job!

I heart comics! Visit my store website!

Love it. I always work with red heart yarn. Nice and cheap. Good enough for me. Besides that I like the way it feels. I made really pretty afghans with that fleck yarn.

I really love it!  The sleeves look great.  I like how it looks with jeans. 

You know, for kids.

oh my! I really really love this!

It seems quick and looks fabulous! I think I may do the same for my first sweater, and I'm thinking cheap yarn as well! I might go for Lion's Brand wool-ease for more stretch.

I never really liked ubernatural though, but I am in love with your modifications of it!

Did you join the knitting and just ignore the buttonholes and whatnot? and your sweater's fabric looks like a tighter knit (which I like better), did you use smalller needles?

looks great!

Thanks everyone! Yeah, it was a pretty quick knit, especially with the big needles and 2 strands of yarn (I used the size needles called for in the pattern).  I just joined in the round from the beginning and ignored the buttonhole parts of the pattern. I had to undo my binding off at the bottom once and do it again more loosely because it was too tight around the waist, but other than that it was smooth. I'd love to see other people's versions if anyone ends up making one!

i didn't like the ubernatural at all, but your modifications make it much more my style!
