I recently finished the Que Sera from Knitty. It took a while because it was a little repetitive and even though the pattern isn't too complex, I couldn't commit it to memory and so I was always working from the instructions. It took a while, but I'm happy I stuck with it. This is one of my first knit (non-hat, non-scarf) garments I'm excited to wear. It fits. It looks good.

Any pattern I do, ends up with changes, usually unintentional. See where the sleeve joins the body and it's a little full on top?



That's ok, a little...ruffling is all that is. No bigs. I'm not sure what happened. I cropped the sleeves because they would be pushed up 98% of the time anyway. Also, I left out the button holes and attached no buttons. I don't need no stinkin' buttons.



Here's a closer look at the pattern.



Now, I'm working on an Ivywild in smurf turquoise that's been going much, much faster. Coming soon.

Happy Knitting!

The repeating pattern is too hard? Or the whole shebang? If it's the repeating pattern, try a swatch, it's not too bad. Thank you for the praise! I chose the same yarn and color as recommended by the pattern.
