Thanks everyone! For the neck, I just repeated the raglan decreases part 2 extra times--I don't have the pattern with me, but after you join the sleeves it says something like ssk, k1, k2tog at markers, k one round, repeat these 2 rounds "x" times. I added 2 times to that "x" number.

It's finished!!!
I finally finished it! My first sweater was a HUGE success!!! It fits perfectly and I love the color!! And although I was super nervous about the neck I really like how it turned out!! I think my husband was more nervous about it fitting/looking good than I was! But he loves it too and is extremely excited that it turned out so great!

Thanks you guys!! :D Yes, surprisingly, maybe because I'm still new at it, but my hubby loves the fact that I'm addicted to knitting! You're right mer, this pattern is definitely terrific! I love the yarn I picked too, and this is by far the best color ever! I orange!! That was half the reason I wanted to do this sweater, because the picture in the book was orange, and that's what attracted me to it, so of course I had to have it in orange! Although Mer, I really like your color too. It makes the sweater look sleeker (is that a word?!) You can't tell in the picture, but the yarn I used is fuzzy, so it's more like a super cozy sweater!!

Hi guys! I am a knitting newbie and have stayed with simple project up to this date. I love the sweater pics posted!! Such great shaping!!

A couple of questions, Kelly Jo-how many skeins of yarn did you use? I don't have the pattern yet, but have seen that book and may have to make a trip to BN. Is this completely knit in the round so there is no side seaming? Are the sleeves the same way? What size cirs are suggested?

Thanks, this may have to be my first sweater project as well.

Laura
