Me wearing sweater & headband
Just before I put the green sweater in the box to mail it I tried it on. I didn't think it would fit me, but it did, so DH took some pictures. I also made a headband of my own devising to match the sweater with my left over yarn. The fact that it fits me means it will probably be a bit big on DD, but I don't have anything under it and she will be able to wear it over things, so it may be okay.

That's just beautiful, Judy! I dont like my sweaters too tight for that very reason so it will probably be perfect!

Both of these look great on you, and I'm sure, will look good on your daughter, too. I agree with Jan--a little big is perfect!

Thanks for sharing the picture! It's always nice to see how something fits, and your creation fits beautifully!!!

What a beautiful job! I especially like your headband. Do you have a pattern for this or is it something you thought of?

I got the pattern free on-line from Drops Design (I love their patterns). Its official name is 127-13 Jacket with lace pattern and round yoke in "Alpaca". Sized S-XXXL

Here is a link directly to the pattern. LINK

fatoldladyinpjs, I made up the pattern based on the designs in the sweater. I cast on 79 sts and kept one stitch on each side in St st and did the garter, K2tog/YO holes in the middle of the St st thing they used as a border then the leaf and another border. Then I picked up 30 stitches at the edges of that and decreased every other row on the right side rows by doing k1, SSK, knit to last 3, K2tog, k1. When I had 12 sts left I started doing 1X1 ribbing, ditching one stitch so that I had 11 so it would be symmetrical. Knit that part to a length it works for you and put a buttonhole on one side and a button on the other. I made a button-hole over the 3 center sts. I actually put several button-holes spaced about 1/2" apart so it could be adjusted.
