The pattern is from Spring 2007 issue of Interweave Knits, called "Bonsai Tunic".
This is the original look:
http://www.interweaveknits.com/images/backissues/toc_spr07/bonsai_tunic1.jpg

I made it out of Cascade 220 in .. some unknown green. I increased the ribbing at the waist to 5" instead of 3" because I'm long waisted. I did 1x1 rib instead of 2x2, omitted the tie waist and split for the neck after knitting up 2.5" instead of the 1" the pattern calls for.

There was no 36" bust size (it went from 34-38 without anything in between :/) so I fudged with the needle size to get a 36" , more or less. My back is quite narrow so I decreased a little more..

I love it more than I thought I would.

Yes! My very first garment ever! I was so excited when I finished it the other day. I'm still on an FO high!
