This is from Interweave Knit's Spring 2008

A really easy knit.
I used Cotlin on 3.75mm.
The pattern runs really huge and I had to stop increasing for the bust after the 2nd set.


To stablise the armholes, I did a round of single crochet which also gave the edge a pretty look


I messed up the neckline, but I don't really think that can be seen.  Aiyah!  Can wear good already la.
 Cheesy

The fit was really nice when it was done


But washing it caused it to stretch width-wise and shrink length wise.  The shrinking was ok, but the stretching makes it not so fitted anymore.
Oh well...

Still love it, though.
Except that Cotlin is warm warm warm!!!

Good job!  I started that pattern FOUR times and it just kept coming out huge no matter what I did!  Congratulations on getting it right!
