This is super cute! My daughter would look adorable in it. Hmmmm...I have some pretty purple cotton that would work great...I may just jump aboard this KAL...although I have to finish up a couple things first. I should be ready to go after the 1st.

Hi everyone! I'm thinking about joining as well, but since I live in Florida - wool will not work for me. Do you think a worsted weight cotton would work?

Also, I am fairly new to knitting, so this would be my first KAL, first sweater, first knitting in the round.....hmmm, maybe I should think about this a little more.

Yes cotton would work lovely for this everyone!

The yarn I'm using its 75% cotton and 25% wool. It'll be perfect for spring and summer. It's a hand wash only yarn though, but I'm willing to take care of it. Wouldn't want the washing machine to eat it

You're right about layering knitwit. I think I would do that and wear a tank under it like in the second picture.

We could learn a lot from crayons:some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names,
and all are different colors....
but they all exist very nicely in the same box.

I'm going to use Cascade Luna in Pink for this. I showed my daughter a picture of it and she loved it. Pink is her color.

Ok, so I cast on for this project, and already have a question... In row 2, it says to "K to marker, RLI, slip marker, LLI" Does that mean that I'm supposed to make both increases into the same under-stitch? If I do that, it makes a hole underneath.

Oh, and by the way I'm using Lily Sugar'n Cream in Yellow and my new (Christmas present) KP options in the recommended size.

I think the pattern describes the increases strange. It says to pick up the stitch below but it's really supposed to be the "leg" I think. Here's a site that displays it better here.
otherwise it would seem to be wrong

I did think I did it wrong too but it's looks like a cross stitch with it very ugly. good luck I don't know about you but I think this pattern is quite hard with it's fancy increases and m1's off the cast on edge...off to try again.

Thanks so much for the link. After watching the little animation, I noticed that the Dahlia instructions specify to "pick up the stitch 2 rows below the last stitch on the right needle." The Domiknitrix just shows her going one row below... Maybe that's why it seems to pull so much.

I have been knitting into the back of the stitch, as that seems to be how the stitch naturally falls, and I think is also what the Domiknitrix link shows. Is that what you're doing?

I agree - this is harder than I thought it would be too. So glad that we have a group to work with!

Ok, so i've restarted this a few more times, and thanks to Suzeeq's suggestion, am making progress. She recommended doing the RLI, LLI increases in reverse order, as in "K to marker, LLI, slip marker, RLI". Soooooo much better!
