Gorgeous! Great job on this...I agree that the pattern is totally brilliant insofar as the lack of seaming, though I was stupid and didn't read the whole pattern and was wondering wher ethe rest of the back went...I'm working on this in a beigy color and hopefully with long sleeves. Did you make it in a size without the front gap?
P.S.  I love your hair! What a fabulous action shot of you!

And I want to be the brave soul who does the duster version!! only the yarn I covet for that (and it would take ALOT of it) is not YET in the budget...!!  Smiley

Now THAT is ambitious! I bet it'd look great, but it would take forever.

Synne-
I made the Large size, and it worked out that on me (size 14-16 busty with a big back) that it provides excellent coverage for the girls--and nearly meets in front (I could add a tie or a pin when I wanted), which is what I was after.  And thanks for the hair comp--it's tough getting a decent shot of yourself! Smiley  Are you going to do full length or 3/4 sleeves? I wonder how you might do a bell sleeve, increase a shell pattern maybe?  Post pics when you're done!

I can never to get a shot of myself with my hair looking decent...hence I have a lot of headless shots around Smiley
I'm thinking of doing full-length sleeves because then I can wear it over long-sleeved shirts in the cooler weather, but depending on how it looks when I get to 3/4 length (love the flexibility of the pattern) we'll see how it goes. I'll definitely update whenever I get it done...
