I am gonnna join you all! this is a beautiful top and I have been wanting to knit something for myself. I have some nice yarn but it is dk weight. Do I have to use worsted? Or maybe I could truly double knit it. I probably have something else I could use too but this sagey/olivey green would be perfect.

I'm sorry knit princess I wasn't a good kal question answer person =/
I honestly have this project on hold because of school work..I hope to start it again after mid terms. I don't understand how to do the increases, next week I'm meeting with a knitting teacher so hopefully I'll have her explain to me. You're brave.

mom2hancj: If you work out a gauge swatch you can use any yarn (within reason of course). You could use your yarn single stranded on a smaller needle or double on a larger one. The amount you cast on and number of stitches will be different. Good luck to you!

mom2hancj, WELCOME!!!! Like SamSam says, I think that as long as you can get gauge, you should be able to use the yarn you want. Olive would be so pretty!

SamSam, don't apologize, we're all in this together! Your link to the domiknitrix was very helpful in figuring out the increases. It really helps to do them in reverse. I hope your tests go well!

I got 46 rows done....and didn't do the last m1 on each row 6, so I had 29 stitches on one side and 24 on the other. I had to frog back more than halfway to get them even.

I can't believe what a dumb mistake that was!

I've put this project on hold until I can meet with my knitting teacher (she was unable to meet the last two months unfortunately)

Joining you all :)
Well I took a sweater top down class, and I hate hate what I am almost done making. I am also going to run out of the wool for it before its done. The wool was a xmas gift and I love it I just cant stand what I have turned out for the class. I know if I continue this I will never wear it.

Low and behold while surfing I found this KAL. I love love this pattern and its very much something I will wear. I am going to frog back the current one and start this one.

I think I will do like someone suggested and switch the increases too.

Thank You
Thanks Knit Princess. I cast this on yesterday afternoon and have 2 repeats of increase rows to go before joining it all. Its the purl rows that get to me . I am using some super soft merino and its very slippery on my needles(Boyes). If I had wanted to wait I would have gone and bought some bamboo needles which I much prefer. But everyone knows the story, gotta do it right now....lol I will try to take a picute tonight and post my progress so far.

Well I finally got to the end of my rounds tonight. But.... I only had 77 stiches on one armhole and 76 on the other. My fronts and back were ok. I decided not to frog, and on the last row of purl before joining I did the needed increases at the increase lines.

I joined the round and was going to take a picture of it. I was laying it out on the bed when I noticed...... I had twisted my stitches on the front CO ones. Ack oh well its not far to tink back, just from the armhole.

I will do a few round of stockinette tonight. Tomorrow I think I will start the sleeves first. Do those then the rest of the body part. This way I know I will have enough yarn. I will most likely just keep going on the body till I am all out of it.

I will post a pic later this week after I upload to the computer.
