Inspiration

From the fall Urban Outfitters catalog. The red one is kind of fascinating - it's one big piece of circular fabric with arm holes and some slight shaping around the arms. When I saw it in the store it actually looked like it might have been a square with a half-moon sewn to each side. I wonder what the best way would be to accomplish that?

oooh, I really like the red sweater. I'd be down for trying to figure it out too.. Maybe it could even be knit in one piece. I once heard about a woman who would buy a garment, take it home and figure out exactly how it was knitted, then return it. very tempting idea.

Ive been eyeing that red one for a while now as well. I still havent seen it in person though.

There was a similar item in the Winter 04/05 Vogue Knitting (#20, in "Zaniba" by Colinette.) That might be a good place to start.

Nice nice nice, the red one is. Gah, must get to a store and see up close.

Now that I think about it, the red sweater looks mighty similar to the Hot Lava cardi, in the way that it's cut.

I just got my urban catalog and saw that red one too! I immediately was thinking of how they constructed it.

Have you seen the Rebecca pattern here (http://www.rebecca-online.com/en/anleit/heft_29_anl_15.pdf)? The mesh pattern looks similar to the cardigan on the left...

Here is a link for schematics for a similar long sleeve crochet pattern that would be easily adapted to knitting.

Ooh, so pretty! I have moved to the land of no UO. And I can't figure out where to sign up for a catalog? I bet you come up with something abfab. I love your inquiring mind.

There were a TON of great sweaters similar to the one on the right at Wet Seal yesterday. I wonder what the sales people would say if I whipped out a camera and started making measurements :)

there's a sweater which looks VERY similar to the red one and has a pattern available for purchase that could just use some tweaking (and a better fit on the model, as well): http://123knit.com/catalog/product_info.php?currency=USD&cPath=38_56&products_id=113

I took my first mortgage loans when I was very young and this aided my relatives a lot. However, I require the term loan once more time.
