I finally finished this sweater. I think I started it in February. I'm not real happy with how it turned out. I did swatch it and even had to start over after a few inches (miscounted the number of stitches!) and went down to a smaller size. But it is still too big. It's just so stretchy!

Anyway, here's the link to the pattern: http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring08/PATTyosemite.html
I used TLC Cotton Plus yarn in Red.

Thanks for looking!

I think it looks great, Robin! :yay: It is cotton so if you wash and dry it it might shrink up a bit.

That's very nice, Robin. Love the color and the style on you. The name caught my eye, as we're planning a trip there in September.

I like the sweater,and it looks great on you!:yay: Question,as far as the cotton goes,did it have any acrylic in it? I've been told that it's a good idea when working with cotton to have that to help hold shape.

i think it looks fabulous! i wish i had enough attention span to finish a project...ive started 5 projects and still wondering what im doing!

cotton is stretchy...so maybe a quick dryer run on low heat?

Ooh, I love it! Great color -- it looks fabulous on you. You've inspired me to go ahead and try this pattern.

If you do try it, make it smaller than you think you need! I'm going to try washing and drying it to see if it will shrink any. I know it looks ok in the picture, but it really is too big for me.

Thanks everyone for your sweet comments!
