Don't have the numbers in front of me, but I was on that #18 train since first glance. That piece brought back memories and made me think of the Author Cardigan with the front and back collar design, was just missing hidden curved placket and side pockets really. I rolled with #18 in BOTH 3 and 4 (why? because I think that piece balled so hard I didn't want to chance not sizing it right and having to scour for seasons on end or fight with others on B&S). Intuition and experience with the knits tells me that a size down is in order, but you never know. The other piece that it reminded me of (weave type) was the Montana Shawl from frozen waves which was also a slightly slouchy piece but more TTS.
If I didn't go for two sizes in #18, would have been all over more stuff for sure.
Hopefully the order gets fulfilled from Mr. Schneider and I can try both to get the fit I'm looking for. Now the long wait begins Edited by tonio028 - 3/6/13 at 4:12am
