When I first saw the pattern for this sweater I thought it was just me. After knitting it I realized it was not me. I found it too small and the stripes does not do me justice...
|UGH, just not me...|
So I knitted it too small and there is nothing worse than a woolen sweater that is too tight. It gets too warm and uncomfortable to wear.
I was supposed to knit a hood for it. But I did not bother doing that. I do not think I am going to wear this much.
I will try and find someone else who looks better in it and would like to wear it.
It is not often I knit something that comes out in a wrong fit. But I manage to finish it after realizing that.
And I learned something: Always check the pattern and the sizes....
But the yarn is so lovely, and I believe it would be a very lovely sweater to wear.
