Has anyone completed or started any of the patterns in that book? I am working on the picot stitch skirt. I started it in a somewhat thick cotton yarn and realized about 5 or 6 rows that it was way too big even in the smallest size (the guage was correct, though) and so tried to decrease it. That just left big gaps in it, so I started over in Senseo crochet thread, and its working up beautifully.

Here is my first (failed) attempt:

And my current attempt (I've actually done a lot since I took this pic):

I'd love to see pictures if anyone has done any of the other projects. There are quite a few I'm itching to try, but I think some of them are a little out of my experience level.

There is some gorgeous stuff in that book, I haven't started anything yet though. If I have time over my winter break, I might start the Marguerite jacket.

 Looks like you're off to a good start on that skirt.
I made the clover fan jacket. Lets just say that a camo colorway acrylic yarn was not the right choice for that project. Also maybe it was because the acrylic I used was lighter than the cotton used in the book but the clover stitch is irratating in that some of the loops pull too tight while some of them catch and loop out. It was pretty disapointing to work on that pattern for a month and a half and get the outcome i did. If anyone is interested in seeing the disaster i could take some photos.

I'm attempting the clover fan jacket as well but can't get past the shoulder inserts portion of the pattern. This is the first article of clothing I've ever tried (aside from gloves and such) so the vague instructions are going wayyy over my head lol. If anyone has any pictures of how it's supposed to be done, or any hints at all really, they'd be greatly appreciated!
