lol... I could add ribbing or some such, but I would have to add it to the sleeves, neckline, and bottom of the sweater, so I'm just calling it finished as is. Its a very basic top down sweater... I'm pretty sure the pattern is copyrighted but since I'm using the same concept with my own numbers on the other one, I'll explain the concept. you cast on (In the round) the number of stitches you want for the neck on a needle size about 2 smaller than your body needles. Do a rib (I used k1 p1 but any rib would work) for about an inch (if you like a high neck, do more), then place 4 stitchmarkers to seperate out "sleeve" stitches from "body" stitches. I used 80 stitches, and placed stitchmarkers as follows: place marker, k10, place marker, k30, place marker, k10, place marker, k30. This is the absolute bare minimum ratio, as far as I can tell so far (that sweater is unfinished) - using more body stitches and less sleeve stitches would work better. Every other row, you want to increase before and after each marker... I prefer leaving more than one stitch between the increases, but as longas you are consistant it looks good. Whatever increase you like. When you get the shoulders long enough that the rows of increases touch underneath the armpits, place all the sleeve stitches on a holder, and CO 8 more stitches. Knit to the other sleeve and repeat. Knit around and around and around until you have a sweater of the correct length. You can increase or decrease for a more fitted appearance - add ribbing at the bottom if you want, I didn't and amazingly my bottom curled up! bind off and go pick up the stitches for a sleeve. Also, pick up eight to ten stitches under the arms. Knit around and decrease at regular intervals to get down to the correct size for wrists at the correct length. do ribbing, BO, and repeat with the other sleeve.
Oh, and the yarn I used is Paton's Classic merino wool in denim something or other (sorry, threw out the label cause my boss has the number written down in case I need more).
