I made cupcake about a month ago out of Bernat camouflage yarn. I was excited as it was the first thing I crocheted that I could wear (I actually wore it to a wedding).  I probably won't wear it again and may frog it as the tightness at the waist (from the original chain stitching) makes it very hard to get on and off.  I will have to try to fix that in the next sweater I make.

I had the exact same problem, and my Cupcake is back in individual balls.........took me a few months to get in the right mind-set to frog it!  Check out the method Doris Chan uses for her base chains.  I think it's referred to as base ch/sc.  It takes some practice, but the beauty of it is the base chain comes out stretchy.  Of course, if we put the shell trim around the hem of the Cupcake, we may be back to the same problem.  I haven't figured that part out  yet!

Thanks! I will check out Doris Chan's method. I don't know if I'll frog it just yet, but I'd like to be able to make stuff I can actually wear in the future.

I think it took me about a month off and on. I love yours - yours fits you so well and gotta love the navy color. Mine was a little big on me in places, but I was excited to finish something that could be worn.
