Nice sweater and colors... I have some yarn that might work for a sweater like this... (looks just like the yarn in your photo- but, of course another brand- since, I bought it overseas.. and there isn't any yardage on it- just grams)

SO, how many grams.. did you use for the sweater? Most of my skeins are sold in either 50 or 100 grams.

Thanks for your answer. I decided to start knitting things for myself.. I rarely do.. and I have some nice yarn that I've been saving for 'someday' and it's time to start using it.

My pattern book finally came and I bought my Noro.
Question, it looks like it runs big in size. My bust measurement is 38", so would I be safe making the Medium? I don't know how much ease there is.
And can I knit the sleeves in the round?
Thanks

Hi Marilynn!

Sorry I'm late in answering this. I've been up in the mountains!

Yes, this sweater is nice and roomy.

No, you can't knit the sleeves in the round cuz they are knit as a part of the upper body. Just follow the directions carefully, and don't try to tweak anything about the pattern, and you will be ok!

I can hardly wait to see your BETTNA!

Hugs,

Dollyce

I got the pattern about a month ago...finally broke down and ordered the yarn. It came in and I was going to put it aside until I finished a couple other WIPs...but the yarn is sooo soft I couldn't wait. It is so nice to knit..I'm really enjoying it. And so far it is really very easy to knit. Thanks for the inspiration.

On vacation this past week, I got the two upper body/sleeves sections done! The lower fronts and lower back were already done and blocked! So this will be BETTNA #4! Yay!

Next month, on our July trip to the mountains, I'm knitting a BETTNA for my DD! She wants one, too! Ordered some Noro Kureyon for hers. She can't wear Silk Garden...due to the kid mohair. She can only wear 100% wool, no added fibers. Or, of course, the cottons, hemps, soys, etc. The vegetable based yarns are ok!

I would love to knit this sweater, but the pattern is currently unavailable. How else can I get this pattern?

Thank you,

The book is available (although new books not currently being published by KFI) at numerous websites.

The Knitting Garden has the book for a reasonable price!
The book is called NORO REVISITED by Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton.

WEBS currently has it!

The Laughing Hens (UK) has it, too!

If none of these websites works for you...just type the name of the book into BING.COM or GOOGLE.COM Either search engine will offer several results.

Happy Knitting!

This sweater is my all-time favorite.
So simple, so figure flattering on any size woman...and so different in appearance depending on your yarn!
