Thanks to all of you who have helped me along the way. I finally finished about 10 mins ago. I am hoping it will look better after washing and drying it.

Thanks again so much!

I'm impressed! I've knitted for 7 years & I've never attempted to make one.

Wow that looks brilliant! I've never attempted to make clothing, seems too difficult. You've done a wonderful job
