A couple of details. Well, I can't remember any of the details of the actual pattern. But as a beginner knitter, my grasp of size and gauge is, well, admittedly, weak. I made this with one particular dress in mind, and when I put it on with the dress, I just wasn't thrilled. Does that ever happen to you? What you see in your mind is really different than how a project turns out.
Heck, I'll just show you some pictures!
Doesn't look too bad from this angle. I'm not wearing the dress I imagined it with, but a different skirt and top.
It's supposed to be pretty much fitted, and it is just too wide across the back and at the neckline. (It's also a little long to be called a cropped sweater, oops.)
Oh, maybe I AM wearing the dress, hee hee.
Yep, I like it better with the skirt, which looks fluffy and full over this full skirted dress.
I want to leave you with a close up of the chartreuse green square buttons and the eyelet design. But don't look too closely, as there are tons of mistakes!
