I'm in. This is going to be fun. I am going to have to hussle to get caught up, looks like I am a little behind.
I'm in too if I can find some yarn in my stash! Cute pattern which I already have in the magazine. Jeanie
Ah, I voted for this one, lovely jumper, I don't have the pattern (I live in the UK) but I will be following your progress. Can't wait to see what it looks like.
Can I buy this to download from the UK?
LYNNLOU63 - I just purchased this as a download at:
You should be able to as well.
Why buy the pattern for $5.50 when the digital mag is only $7.99? You get that pattern and a bunch more.
This should be fun.
Your guage is 16 inches per inch? Did you mean 16 stitches to 4 inches/ 4 to the inch?
I just brought the pattern and will join in, I may knit the 48 version as I need a roomier sweater or should I go down a needle size?
Oh, geez. I'm getting 16 inches over 4 inches, not 16 stitches per inch. I think I could get that gauge it I used thread or something!
Hello all. I have the pattern from my IK magazine, bought Cascade 220 Doeskin Heather yarn, and made the swatch with 17 st per 4 inches on size 8 needles. (I set aside the almost finished Betty Pullover for later.) The Lapis YokePullover is now cast on and a few rows are knit. Now I can fret over fit ;D Judy in SE WI
Hi! I am using some yarn in my stash which is more sport weight so am using a size 10 needle (that's what it took to get gauge) - hope it works! I am wondering which type of M1P we should use? Does it matter? Thanks! Jeanie in Charlote, NC
I am in too. i have been working on this Lapis sweater since January when it seemed to be the winner. I am doing it in a plum heather Artful yarn that I had in my insanely large stash. It is about the same color as the one in the pattern - just a plum color instead of blueish. The yarn is wool/alpaca/viscose so it has a slight fuzz to it.
i already have 35 rows done - ready for next increase. I will probably not do the garter stitch trim below the yoke or the other trim at the waist. Just do a solid ST stitch with ribbing to cuffs - long sleeves if have enough yarn. Very easy pattern...
I also started this last month because I liked it so much I figured I'd make it whether it won or not. I have the yoke done and have just separated off the sleeves. It looks great in Knit Picks Gloss because of the silk in it--makes the ribbing really stand out. I'm making the smallest size and got gauge perfectly with the Gloss. I like the way the garter stitch makes the separation between the ribbing and the stockinette stitch so I'm glad I kept those four rows as called for. I agree, this is going to be an easy, relaxing knit. Lots of fun and should look nice on all body types. Everyone have fun. This is what I have done so far. The pink yarn is the waste yarn for the sleeves and you can barely see the four rows of garter stitch then about an inch of stockinette so far. It was a LOT of stitches on the needle before taking off 100 stitches for the sleeves but now it should go really fast. Does anyone else use cottage cheese cartons to keep their working yarn in? Works great for me!

~ Thank you for the information - do you know which digital mag is it in? I've had a look in the 'shop' but you can't see all the contents of the magazines, would much rather spend slightly more to get more lovely patterns!
Looks great - love the color! What kind of make one purl are you using? Thanks! Jeanie
