Pretty yarn, love the color! I remember that pretty red & black sweater you made for Christmas... I think this yarn would look lovely in that pattern. What do you think?

Have a great day everyone!

I like the idea of the cardi trimmed in black, but I'm partial to cardis. The raglan T pattern in the parrot is working up beautifully. Wouldn't it look great with a pair of denim capris?


glad you liket the Paris! cant wait to see what you decide to use it for :)


Could you just do the sleeves and maybe the neckline and hem in the crochet?


Thanks for the pattern errata - I've printed them out and stuck them in my book. As far as the coral yarn - you can NEVER go wrong with a Chanel-inspired design - ingenious!


Margaret - Great thought, but I doubt I'd have enough of the coral for that pattern. You're right, though, it would look very nice!

Hi Linda - Yes - it would look nice with Capris too. I honestly don't know why I'm ambivalent toward this top! One day I think it's fine, the next I'm whining about starting something else with the same yarn. Sheesh! I need to get a grip! LOL

I love it Silja!

Leisel - You know, I had that thought too. Kind of a mesh for the sleeves & hem. Hmmmm...

Rhonda - That's what I'm hoping! I might try my hand at designing my first "real" fitted sweater pattern. Then again, I'm awfully lazy & prefer to have it all spelled out for me. LOL We'll see what I can come up with. :)

It's not always spelled out correctly though. Might as well do your own. C'mon, that'd be fun.

Paris is gorgeous! Great color for sommer. The Chanel-ish cardigan sounds perfect for it. One of the Threads books has an article about a woman knitting a houndstooth Chanel jacket. (Yeah, no reason for that, I just thought of it. I'll just slink off stage left....)


Carrie! Bite your tongue, girl! Knitting a houndstooth Chanel jacket. Sounds like absolute torture!

LOL - good for you catching that little irony about me wanting my patterns to spell things out & then having them NOT work!

You're right - I should just go for it & design my own. :)


Oh my God,,,,I am working on the Audrey and have undone my left front 2 times thinking it was me. I am glad to know that it is a pattern error but unfortunately, I am not advanced enough of a knitter to know how to fix it. I am making a size small and when I get to the point of starting to shape neck, I've already decreased stitches to about 24 by then. To begin to shape neck, I need 30 stitches, according to pattern (that was the original amount of st cast on to begin the left panel. You don't know how much it would mean to me if you (or if you know someone who can help me!!!) can give me any assistance on how to procede. My phone number is 401-223-4425. Thank You.
