I knit this for myself. I found the yarn at savers, its DMC Tapestry Wool. I think I paid less than $5 for 20 skeins. I used 19 of them. The pattern itself is Red Heart, published in Germany and the UK, but I found it on Ravelry. I made the back a bit more interesting, and I had to re-write the pattern to make an XS and it's still a tad bit big for me. But I love it!

wow I would never have thought you could knit with tapestry wool.  It turned out really well. Lovely colour.
