Your mini-sweater is cute!  I knit one up a few weeks back.  Still needs a few minor adjustments, but I've worn it anyway.... perhaps when I completely finish it I'll post my finished product....

You could be as hated as me if you only tried.

I think if I had just seen this pattern on the Glampyre site I would have thought it was too complicated.  Your picture makes it look cool, wearable, and easy to knit.  Thanks for posting!

You know... you could add a few inches of rib or whatever to the bottom and you'd have a pretty flip little cover up, not unlike the ones being hawked at Guess this fall. I like this as a cover up - very sweet yet badass.

I have seen pictures of this on a few knitblogs.  It always seems to come out looking great like yours!  I'm wondering how it would look in fun fur...

That looks like a great way to extend the wear of tank tops into the fall without covering them up!  I'll have to give this pattern a try if I get the Denise interchangeable needles that I'm hoping for for my birthday.  I really like your choice of yarn.  Your's is even cuter than the one in the pattern!

Wow!  I'm not sure this is really MY style, but it looks fabulous anyhow!  (It's pretty sad how many fabulous things I see that I'm quite sure I'd never wear..)  I stumbled across a whole set of "Workbasket" magazines from 1958 - 1962 (26 in all.  Yippee!!) and one of them has a pattern for something very similar to this, only, of course, very retro.  Someone mentioned doing it in fun fur, which I think would kick total butt, especially if it was HOT PINK a la Madonna in the 80's.  I ALSO think this thing would be to DIE for done in something like Berroco's "Quest", which looks kindof lame on the website, but is this shimmery, nylon, TO DIE FOR metallicy stuff in real life.  And SOFT like you wouldn't believe.  Looks like liquid metal, feels like rabbit fur.  Anyway, aside from their silver, gold, brass, copper colors, they also make one called Lapis, that is, as one might expect, a rich royal blue.  I say someone gives THAT a try, because I'd like to see it!!

So this is my first ever sweater, and so far, I'm up to Row 34 of the Minisweater pattern... see Exhibit A:

(Exhibit A)

For those of you who completed this pattern, does this look right? Or did I fudge it up? Opinions and advice, please! I'm just a smidge confuzzed.  Roll Eyes

This is so ironic, I was looking at this pattern today thinking it would be so cute and fun to try. Great job India. I'm somewhat underendowed too; so you took out 10 sts from the smallest size? I'll have to remember that.
Flapperjack, I can't help, but I love the stripe pattern, and I think this will look really cool on you.

I was just pondering this sweater last night, and wondering if it would fit bony lil me...  I love the style, although I would probably knit long sleeves. 

A sweater in four days!  That's reason enough to knit it!

Was the pattern clear?  Did you get tripped up over anything?
