My minisweater! Wore it out tonight and got many comments, all kind. It's the funniest looking thing I've ever knit and kind of my favorite. I love all of these green yarns and now they're together forever! This was a scrap-buster but I STILL have scraps so I think I'll make this lovely scrap shawl http://www.interweave.com/knit/interweave_knits/ashley.asp featured in Interweave, or maybe a memories capelet http://spunmag.com/article/050410sbcapelet




I did do the spikes, but only on the neck and they need a blocking to be more pointed. I did a crochet edge on the sleeves to make a teensy ruffle. I love crochet edges!


I'll definitely be using this pattern again, it is flattering and fun, and so very versitile. Everyone is making such lovely versions, and none of them are the same!

Omigosh!! That is the most beautiful minisweater I've seen yet! I can't believe you got the stripes to line up when you were seaming the armholes! Great job:)

Popsi- the pattern is from Glampyre.com: http://glampyreknits.tripod.com/glampyrephotos/id62.html
I think there is also an extensive thread going already with variations of these:).

If you can't beat 'em, knit for 'em.
