I really liked this pattern when I saw it. So I made it. I feel like it's a bit big on me, so I'm not sure if I want to try some controlled shrinkage in the wash or not.

Here it is.

The front

The Back

Ooh! That's cute! I like your lacy cami under it, too.  May I ask what size you used?  I don't want to make it and have it be too small  Tongue

I think it's beautiful. I wouldn't shrink it, then you can still wear something warm underneeth, like a turtleneck or something. Really cute!

We all make mistakes, and then when you've made enough, they call it experience.

I've been eying that pattern. Your turned out great. I love the color on you. Did you use the bamboo yarn? How would you rate the difficulty of the pattern? I know on the website they say easy, but I never trust those ratings.

That looks great - you did a beautiful job. Now I'm tempted to try to make one that laces up the front, corset-style Smiley

I didn't use the bamboo yarn. It was some worsted weight yarn I bought at a LYS. I worked out the yardage needed and bought 6 skeins, but only ended up using 4. Now what to do with the other 2. lol.  It really was pretty easy. You have to pay attention and count when you're increaseing and decreasing, but other than that I thought it was super easy.
