Here she is in all her glory:
Pattern: Monica from Knitty
Yarn: Cascade Sierra in colors 01 and 29
Yardage: less than one 191 yard skein of each color
Needles: US size 7
Modifications: A lot. First of all, I knit the sweater in the round. For the size six sweater this meant I cast on 126 stitches and knit 3 rows in garter stitch. Then I purled the first stitch of the next round, knit 61 stitches, purled 2 stitches, knit 61 stitches, purled 1 stitch. I continued to work in this way until I ran out of yellow yarn about one inch before the length I needed. So, I knit the remaining inch in the lavender. I knit the ruffle in the round as well, casting on 248 stitches for the size six sweater and knitting three rows in garter stitch. I continued knitting all rounds until the ruffle was 2.25″ in length — shorter than specified in the pattern. For the next row I knit the first stitch, knit two together 61 times, knit 2, knit two together 61 times, knit 1. When binding off I accidentally made the straps 3 stitches wide instead of the 4 stitches specified in the pattern. The last modification was I knit the straps the full length — 7″ for the size six sweater — and then used kitchener stitch to attach them to the three held stitches on the back of the sweater.
