Ok..... so does half-completed count? LOL

I'm just so proud, cuz it only took me a little over a week, and I even added short-rows to it, so it wouldn't creep up (my butt, this is the back side.) Comments are always appreciated!



Thanks for looking!

That is pretty! But does it instruct you to knit the stitches twisted, or do you just like the fabric it creates?

Lovely :-)

Thanks! Professional?!?! You just made my day Yarndini! LOL

I thought this pic hid most of my gauge mistakes, but I guess not!  Undecided They're not twisted stitches, it's just gauge issues - I kept tightening up for no apparent reason. I really struggled with the pleat insets too, where I was switching from knit to purl stitches. I'm glad they curl in, cuz when they're stretched out you can see how wonky my gauge was! It's really just stockinette with reverse stock. insets for the pleats.
