I added an extra row of octogons, it is knit with wool from knitpicks and its done  Grin  It is actually a very fun pattern to knit as each octagon is done seperately, but attatched if that makes any sense

Have you tried it on yet, and if you did, are you satisfied with the fit? I knit this as well, but the fit is odd- there's a tremendous amount of fabric in the front and the sleeves are oddly placed (in my opinion)

I actually made it for someone else and its to large on me to tell the fit. I found it hard to photograph because of the placement of the sleeves. Also since it is a larger size I find the neck odd.

I knit it too - fun to knit and very clever, but the fit is terrible.

Ok, I'm glad I'm not the only one who found the sleeve placement odd and the fit bad. Helped me make up my mind to undo it all and use the yarn for something else!

There's a thread somewhere with one of these, the knitter had the same complaints about the fit, she turned it upside down and did a few waistband/neckline mods to turn it into a cardigan...

I can't find it though?  It's here somewhere...

I saw that, and wasn't overly thrilled by the looks, though it was a clever solution to the problem. I'd rather rescue the yarn and make something I'll actually wear.
