and doesn't look anywhere near as wide on as it does laid out which is a big plus cuz let's face it, noone wants butt bulk Wink

Yeah, that's the odd thing.  When I first started, I was worried because I seemed to have misjudged the gauge (I'm lazy about that and probably hadn't measured it properly) - it was quite a few inches wider at the top than I wanted it to be. I held my breath and hoped that the drawstring would take care of the problem, and to compensate for how wide it was to begin, I didn't start the increases till further down than I might have otherwise.  I feel lucky that it worked out! What I'm wondering now is that since it *is* wide at the top, would it be one-size-fits-many?  I'm a little too shy to ask anyone else to try it on (especially since the purpose would be to see if it would fit someone heavier, and I don't want to offend people), but my hope is that it would also fit well on someone larger.

Awesome! *nervous*  Yes, do let me know how it goes! If there's anything confusing about the pattern, I'd be happy to try to clarify.
