Those look great, Meghan! I just cast on last night, I have the neckband done so far. The Panache is super squishy - I think it will be very comfy, and just the right thing for chilly evenings.

This is such a great pattern. I've made several over the last year. It was easily adaptable for me to make one for my young niece. Attached are pics. One of them was taken before it was finished.

ok soooooo i am almost done making this and all i have left is the ribbing on the sleeves. now, all the stitches for the sleeves are on stitch holders right now (one for each sleeve) and the pattern says to pick up the stitches and do the ribbing. i've only picked up stitches from bound off pieces, not from live stitches. sooo how do i go about doing that?

if they're on stitch holders, you just go around and pick up the loops off the stitch holder (or in most cases scrap yarn).
i think for the pattern it says to knit back and forth on that and then sew up the seem. because i'm lazy and don't like to seem after i finish a project, i picked up a couple extra stitches in the armpit area and then knit a rib stitch in the round. then when you castoff, you're DONE. no seeming!

shelley, yours look great! :D

i need to remake mine...they're definately too small...i'll probably give them to someone at work, and then just remake them. lord knows i have enough simply soft sitting around!

i might caston for the offwhite one..problem is, all i have at home for that is an itchy acrylic. but, it's just sitting there otherwise....i'll see...

ok so for those of you who have made this using caron simply soft...how did it turn out? i used doubled up wool ease (the worsted weight) to make it bulky and it turned out pretty good but i know what simply soft is a pretty thin worsted yarn. does it make a big size difference or do you even notice it?

i made my black one in double simply soft and i like it a lot! my only complaint is i should have made it bigger, but that's not the yarn's fault! it hangs really nicely. this pattern is so versitile, it'll work with just about anything! so i'd say, no you won't notice it's a smaller worsted at all!
can't wait to see pictures!

i wore my burgundy one to work the other day because we FINALLY had some warm weather. over my black tank top, it was pretty styling. i don't have a broach yet, so i just left it hanging open. i think i might crochet some rope to use to tie a bow on each of my caplets, but i haven't decided just yet.

can't wait to see more pictures of your finished summer caplets!

Ugh, I started the ribbing on the first sleeve, and realized that I dropped a stitch somewhere (I think when I picked them up from the scrap yarn). But, I think I made it a bit too big anyway, I think I might want one less increase row, so I may frog it back to there anyway. I put it down last night because I was so frustrated, I'll look at it again in a few days.
