lindseyloo, that's GORGEOUS! I'm so proud of you! wha a beautiful color, too. Can you give me any feedback on what needs to be changed in the pattern to make it a little easier to understand?


Thanks so much!  I can't really think of anything that needs changed in the pattern.  It was pretty easy to follow.

Oh gosh, I can't wait to try this. I just loved Luna's clothes in the movie, especially this one.

Ok, so here is a pic of me in my new Luna Lovegood sweater!!  I originally crocheted the pattern as written, but as you can see I'm a wee bit bigger than the average gal so I had to modify it to fit me.  If anyone wants to know how much I added let me know.  This is the very first sweater I have ever crocheted so I am thrilled!!!  The pattern was pretty easy to understand, though it took me 3 times to get the sleeves right.  THANK YOU for the pattern!  YAY!!!

One more thing, the button covers were really easy tho I broke my favorite hook making them, HA!

I attempted to make the cardigan, but it came out all wrong.  Undecided Your pattern was actually pretty easy to follow, chucklikesart, but I, in my infinite wisdom, was brought down by my obsessiveness.

I was looking at some HQ shots of the Thestral scene, and zoomed in to check out Luna's cardigarn, and discovered that the fishnet is also on the sides of the cardigan, and that the bottom of the cardigan looks like it is done in some kind of ribbing:

excuse the semi-creepy cropping... i wanted to conserve my printer ink. Smiley
 
So, I worked the fishnet mesh a few rows under the sleeves. My undoing was that I hadn't thought about how the fishnet mesh would make the body of the cardigan much too wide... And so I scrapped

I really shouldn't have tried to modify the pattern, since this was the very first thing I ever crocheted (learned just to crochet this!  Grin), but I was wondering if there was some way to work in the mesh without the sweater becoming too large?

NINcompoop- so pretty! It looks great. I can't wait to finish mine!

I am working on this pattern and am almost finished with the yoke, I have been kind of slow on this project. Since school starts next week, I have been spending most of my free time with my boys playing outside! I do have a few hours tomorrow to work on it in the car though so hopefully I will finish soon. I am using Simply Soft Brites in the color Grape.

I'm having problems with the sleeves, the middle mesh is working out fine but the ends of the sleeves are a mess. I am a little confused on how to finish these rows is the mesh supposed to be all the way to the end or do I finish it with dcs?
