Hmmm I'm not sure if that would work....

That may work. Thanks for the link. After all this, though, I'm thinking I don't really want to knit a piece that is twice as wide as me for any length of time, esp since I'm not sure how good it will look (read question "will it look like a ruffled tent?") so I may just have to go on the hunt for another store-bought sweater.
