I am done!! Picture here
I am very happy with how it turned out. :o)
; It was a pretty tricky pattern I though. I have only been knitting for 4 months though. I felt it left a lot of things unsaid that I either had to ask about here of figure out on my own.
It is a flat knit, so no knitting in the round. Just so you know.
I think if you have some more experience than I have you could probably fill in the blanks better than I could.
Thank you so much for your help MerigoldinWA
! I used a size 6 for the ribbing and a size 10 to bind off. hehe It worked! And I picked up many more stitches than the pattern said. I never counted how many, it just worked out. :o)
