I made this with malabrigo in the colorway velvet grapes. I :heart: how the sweater came out the only thing is it doesn't fit me, so it is now my moms Christmas present. I was really disapointed I really wanted something for myself made out of this yarn. Oh well another reason to go buy more.

That is really gorgeous! How many skeins did you use?

I used 3 skeins and I thought it would make about a size Large, but it made more like a size Medium.

Gorgeous! How did you do the arms? Did you CO on extra stitches for underarm ease? I have 3 skeins each of 2 colorways looking to become sweaters.

I didn't cast on anymore stitches for the arm. I just sewed the underarm area closed after I was done the sleeve. I have a leisure arts sweater book and I followed one of there patterns for the sleeves so I could get the decreases right. Thank you for all the compliments. I really love the sweater, so I hope my mom likes it as much as I do. Actually I know she will love it I'm just hope she will take care of it properly. I would hate for her to throw it into the washing machine. I almost feel sad getting rid of this one.
