I made mine yesterday! I read through all 58 pages of posts so I could understand how to customize this to fit me. I got carried away in watching television as I knit, so I totally forgot to do the "k2" on each end of my purl rows -_-;; so it curls, but I was able to iron it flat. It's not noticable so much when I tried it on.
Anyway, I knit mine up on size 10.5 circular needles & less than 1 skein of Caron Simply Soft in black. It's held together with a dragonfly pin I've had for years.
knit side (and before ironing)
purl side (after ironing) <-- my preferred "right side"
Thanks to julsey723
for a wonderful pattern! and to loisgriffinwannabe
for all the helpful posts within these pages about gauge & customizing it to fit. This was my first big knitting project (that wasn't a scarf or anything; this thing has sleeves!!) so I wasn't quite sure if I would even knit it to fit me. But it fits just perfectly!
