Hi Becca,

I have ordered the yarn for the Groovy Sweater Dress and can't wait for it to get here so I can start! I'm already a little confused, though, because there are 3 needles listed, but the pattern only refers to the "smaller needles" and the "larger needles". Have you figured out which needles are supposed to be used where? How far are you and has it been tricky so far?

Hi - I am currently knitting the groovy sweater dress and am completely stuck at the instructions after the lattice cables (beginning decreases and rib stitching). Have you had any luck?

I am about to start doing the ribbing but am also stuck. I am knitting the size S. Can't understand how it is possible to decrease 28 stiches in the reverse stitches. Have you managed to do this?

Thought I'd chime in since I have already knit the groovy sweater dress. In the small, it is not possible to decrease to the 28 and have the top "vine come out of the center of the two knit stitches. It is an error in the pattern according to an email I got from someone at Classic Elite.

One more thing I want to mention is about the sizing. I am a size 4 or 6 (5'7'' 120 pounds) and I made the small. I have worn it and feel the top is too tight to be comfortable. Also I don't like it if the knitting looks too stretched out. That is just my personal opinon. I think I am going to rip out the top and start again from the ribbing and make the top part a medium. I will be doing the sleeves short sleeve and wear a very thin long sleeve shirt under it.
