eeek! Our first finisher - it looks great - love the color!

Did you try it on at all? I know it's for a friend but I'm wondering how you find the fit....

Great job!

I have finished mine - wow, it was the quickest knit ever!  Mine is made of cotton fleece doubled, and I followed the directions for XS exactly.  I love it so much, I had to go out to dinner tonight just so I had somewhere to wear it!

Someone posted on Zephyr Style about making the sleeves longer but I don't think it has any replies yet....


I would love to make mine with 3/4 lengh sleeves!
Still waiting for my yarn.

This might make it onto my "to do" list if it had longer sleeves...  Hope somebody tries it and posts pics!

I'm in the middle of the XS - just finished the setup row for the lace!  (I actually completely finished the S but then frogged back up to the sleeve-cast-off for the XS because the S was just kind of a huge bag-looking-thing on me)

I had a long moment of confusion with that setup row, b/c if you do 21 repeats of K1f&b&f&b (which by the way is SO not my favorite stitch!), you end up with 163 sts, not the 159 that it says.  I did some math and 163 is the right number so that the lace works out evenly.  So for anyone having issues on the lace setup for the XS, I think the solution is follow their instructions to do 21 repeats of the *K3, K1f&b&f&b* to get 163 total stitches, and ignore the 159 sts they say you should have.

The two pics posted so far are super cute!   Smiley I searched far and wide online trying to find finished pics since it's such a new pattern, and stumbled across craftster in the process... how had I not known about this before?  What an amazing website!  I hope to take some pics of my Juliet in progress/finished later this week!

I've had the same issues with lace panel, but other ppl who are making it xs mentioned they didn't have problem.  I guess they just didn't count the stitches after the set up row.  Thank you for the info!
