So I finally decided to bite the bullet and make a sweater. Yes, it's a little short sleeved cropped sweater, but a sweater nonetheless.

This is basically the Anthropologie inspired capelet from craftster fame, but I replaced the yarn overs with M1T increases bc my yos kept coming out all stupid and crooked. I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease Chunky.

I need a pic of me wearing it - it actually fits properly!

I hear that - I have about 40 patterns sitting and waiting right now lol. :heart:

This is pretty easy - I am really a n00b and it wasn't too difficult.

Thanks :D. This one was great for a first sweater bc it's chunky yarn, big needles, very little seaming.

I did start it three time before getting to this lol -- I couldn't get the increases in the original pattern to work for me -- it was a nightmare.
