This is my next project. I did a swatch last night to see if I have the stitch down and it's super easy!!!!!!!!! I did it in Yarn Bee (Dreamy Chenille yarn) in Dusty Lilac color. It's beautiful, even my husband loved it.

The pattern is free at http://www.straw.com/cpy/patterns/cpy9602.html

Anyone interested in making this pattern, remember to make the ribbing first, the pattern omits that! I was on my 4 row or so before I realized it! :doh:

I'm afraid I may have made this too small, is there a way I can increase without undoing the whole thing? I've finished the back, and it's just a square, there were no armhole decreases, or neck shaping. I guess since it's a sweatshirt, I don't know. Also that puffy stitch I think MIGHT be possible to do sideways without standing out too much, but then there's the purl rows and ribbing..........ayayayayay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Any ideas? I thought I might start the front one size bigger and increase the back the way I mentioned above, but I still consider myself a novice and I don't know if or HOW I can. At worst I guess I'll just have to lose the weight I have been meaning to lose anyway just to fit into this project which I have put so much work into! :rofl:

I've never made a sweater, except for my dog sweaters :D, so I'm REALLY looking forward to being able to wear something I have made OTHER than a scarf!

BTW, this is SUCH a simple pattern and it looks so complicated..........AND I'm loving the lumpy texture! I'm done with the back and the front is halfway done. :happydance:

JIC anyone's watching this post, I'm having a sleeve issue, which is probably something simple, but it's my first sleeve so I'm perplexed.

I've posted the question here (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/viewtopic.php?p=408959#408959).
