Love the sweater -- and your mods. I have a question: Does the sweater have to have the buttons? In other words, is the neckline big enough to get it over your head without the opening? Thanks for your answer.

Thank you, Betty, for your kind comments. It was a fun knit, to be sure! And one I will probably attempt again someday.

I just went and tried it on again (cause I completely forgot whether I unbuttoned it or not the other day), and I don't need to unbutton it to pull it over my head. Of course, I used a cotton blend yarn, which is very stretchy, too, so that helps. However, I will also say that my neckline is large enough to fit over my head without much (if any) of a stretch.

If you look at the pattern, you will see that it has you working back and forth in rows to allow for the button flap. Obviously, you could just make this completely in the round as a regular ol' top down raglan and then sew the buttons on for sheer decoration (or for sheer torture, depending on how you feel about sewing--with me, it's the latter).

I hope that helps. Will you be making one? Would love to see your rendition!

I have some bamboo-blend yarn that is quite stretchy that I want to use for a short-sleeved sweater (for me, not one of the DGC's). That pattern seems perfect, and I would add a lace border, too.

Ohhhhh-hhhhh! A bamboo-blend sounds perfect, and stretchy yarns work really well in this pattern--so much so that you may not even need the waist shaping.

I have six Dear GrandChildren, ages 9, 7, 7, 5, 5, and 2. They love the sweaters, lovies, afghans, hats, scarfs, and mittens that I am usually knitting for them.

Thanks, I couldn't quite place DGC. I think GK. Love my DGCs (12 and 14) and they like getting the things I make but I'm making something for me now too.
