Falling off of the Wagon

I must admit that I broke down and started on a swatch for the Japanese outfit. I couldn't help it. All those wonderful yarns were calling to me.

I'm using larger needles to help size up the outfit. And to ensure it would fit. I'm writing the directions to knit the pattern top-down. That way I can add on some length as needed. With the gauge I'm using the width should be big enough for use this winter and possibly for next winter.

I'd like to clarify that I'm not really translating the written pattern but interpreting the charted diagrams. Here is an example of a Japanese knit chart.
That site has a nice tutorial on interpreting the chart. And this is another great site that has a Japanese-English knit dictionary.
