This is only the second sweater I have ever made. It fits fine and is very warm. I have been wearing it a lot this winter.

It's made with 1 1/2 skeins of JoAnn's Sensations yarn (the brushed kind). It was fast and easy...my favorite kind of pattern  Wink. I definitely think it's good for beginners too.
I used this pattern, but I didn't add the length or the collar. I wanted a sweater instead of a coat.

It looks pretty, toasty and comfy.  Your version is so different from the pattern picture; I never would have guessed.  Good job!

I love that.  The thought of making clothes is so intimidating to me, but yours looks so terrific.  I would definately wear that.

You did an amazing job! I've bookmarked it for later. I may have to give it a try. I actually like your version better than the original. Smiley

I love your version!  I would never have tried it just looking at the original.  What yarn did you use???

very nice! I really love the color you chose. And it helps to see the jacket without the "neck" thing.
