Hey Guys,
I am looking for a tunic (long) sweater and/or sweater dress as I have a long torso and these usual sweaters don't cover! Or a sweater dress pattern, this is kind of what i'm thinking....

Ooo Fibrenut, that's site has some neat patterns! Thanks for the tip!
Wiredqs- I can't tell how long that one is, though I love the cableing. I suppose I could take any sweater and make it as long as I want and make it a bit more fitted than the pattern calls for, huh?

Bikini,
Vogue just reopened their website and you might be able to get the pattern from the archives it was the fall 2002 mag.
I don't think I would knit it for myself, too curvalishus I would probably shorten it for myself into a tunic or something but hey that's just me. LOL:knitting:

Starburst, that is a really nice one. Did you knit it, is that you wearing it? Looks nice.
And Divagirl, I do like that one too, thanks for posting.
Now, I"ll have to see about getting that FALL2002 Vogue Mag. Do you have that mag, Fibre? How did you all of a sudden find that? I saw the Free 25th Anniversary Patterns on the website, but those all look like they"re from 2007....?
