I think after a while reading patterns and charts is like learning a different language really fluently. You get to a point where you don't have to translate it in your head. You know exactly what they mean.

I sincerely hope it fits. It should, but there's always that question with sweaters in pieces. You can't exactly try it on.

That looks good! I, of course, did it perfectly the first time.
And I never make mistakes, now. And I never have to sew up holes that invariably happen. And the inside of my sweater is just as smooth and neat as can be.

Everything requires practice, so why shouldn't this? I like the hat--I'd say you're well on your way.

I think that hat looks cute and perfectly fine.

Incidentally, I love Kaffe Fassett's colorwork. The beauty of his patterns is that there are rarely if ever any fancy texture stitches or anything. The beauty comes from the color combos and patterns. The actual knitting is generally good old stockinette stitch. I used his kimono coat pattern once just for the shaping and did my own color choices, which I now call my Blob Robe and would never in a trillion years wear out in public. But I did make my sister the same coat with a tweedy, slubby yarn and added a hood to it. I guess she wears it all the time. Wish I had taken a picture of it.

hat
I tore it out it fit me lol....was little to big, and i did the color change wrong big time the duck did not turn out like it was supose to because of how i did the yarn. I will have to find someone near me to sit down with me and teach me the correct way. I taught myself everything i know just about so i think i did ok on it, but i did not do it correct. That and i do not add yarn correct, and i don't hide the ends right i need some help...i guess thats what i get for teaching myself lol.
Hugs,
Vanessa
