My CPH was knit with acrylic (Mary Maxim Ragg) and I think it turned out really well. I LOVE IT (if that doesn't sound too immodest). Good luck and enjoy!!!

Hi MommaG!

We're here for you!

I know it's IMPOSSIBLE to read through 69 pages of posts for this knitalong! I've requested from "management" to create a way that we can roll knitalongs into their own "forum"...where we can post specific "topics" such as THE BACK, THE FRONTS, THE SLEEVES, etc. This would make knitalongs so much more organized and user-friendly!

Anyway, it may come along someday, after other KnittingHelp upgrades are accomplished!

You shouldn't have any problem with the pattern. It was really easy, and there were no Major pattern errors that I can remember. Maybe one small glitch, but it was minor, and might be corrected in the newer versions of the pattern now! Check online. If there is an error in the pattern, they will declare it and give the correction.

Acrylic makes a fine sweater! It will keep you warm and cozy, and a great benefit is WASHABLE! Yay!

Hugs,

Artlady

Holy cow, MommaG, you are really going to town!! Good for you!

I've put my hoodie aside several times. Now I remember why I prefer scarves and blankets - none of that pesky seaming and picking up stitches!! haha... Anyway, I finished the ribbing all the way around the sides and hood. I did the 3-needle bindoff for the hood and picked up the edging all the way around at one time. I've got the sleeves blocking and need to block the edging and then I'm ready to finish up this thing! I've got 2 more days to get it done "this year", but I probably won't get it done until the weekend. Oh, and I still have to buy buttons. No stressing here, though!!

I was on days off so all I did was knit all day and I have been admiring this pattern for a long time as I said and I think because I like it so much I really want to get it done fast. I can't wait. it will be so nice and warm. Living in Canada it gets kinda cold.

Done my Left Front. I am so enjoying this pattern it is so easy. This is my first major project with cables. I used to be scared of cables but now I realize they are easy and fun.

I'm having a problem with a pattern section. I can't seem to wrap my brain around this part (left front):

rep Dec row every other RS row 7 times - 34 stitches rem. AT THE SAME TIME work as follows:

When armhole measures 5", end with WS row.
Next Row: (RS) work in patt to last 11 sts, incl any armhole shaping, then place last 11 sts on holder. Continue working rem sts on needle in patt - 23 sts rem after armhole shaping is completed.


Can someone please explain to me as if I'm 5? I just can't understand it.

Thanks!

This means that there will "work to do" at each end of the rows during this time. That's what "AT THE SAME TIME" means. The neck edge and the armhole edge will have a "work order" on the same rows sometimes. But, each side is it's own island, so to speak. So just make a list of the "work order" for each edge, and work them in sync!

I had to read this part of the pattern more than once too inorder to wrap my head around it as well. But just did this part last night so it is fresh in my mind. Continue doing your decreases every other right side row and Once your arm hole reaches 5" long and you have just finished a row with the wrong side facing you and are about to work your next right side row(the pretty side looking at you) work it like you have been decrease if you have to and go across the pattern as you have been stopping with 11 stitches left to go then place those 11 stitches on a holder and turn around and continue working on the remaining 23 stitches going till your arm hole is the required length.

I hope this helps between what our resident expert ArtLady said and what I tried to say. Clear as mud hey. Have fun. Have I said how much I love this pattern.
