FO: Textured Chenille Sweatshirt
FO!!!!!!! This is my first sweater ever. It was easy. Towards the end of it though I decided it wasn't the right shape for me, but perfect for my mom (the model). I did it in Yarn Bee's Dreamy Chenille. My original post is here.

I did the sleeves slightly different from the pattern (only because I messed up on the first one and didn't want to frog and redo both) I think it turned out OK. I also made it about 4" longer, because mom doesn't like short sweaters.

This is soooooooo soft. It was hard to keep the dogs off of it. LOL!

That turned out great! Managing to solve the problem you came to with the sleeves is terrific. They certainly look right, so no one will ever guess. The color and texture are really nice and it looks very nice on your mom.

Thanks all!

The knobby texture makes it huggably soft!!!!!!!!! It's an easy stitch and after a while you can do it without looking. I'm almost sorry I gave it away. LOL! But mom really liked it! It's a Christmas gift. But I'm also going to secretly make her some socks

I'm going to make the Tree of Life cardigan for myself next.
