Yet another Calorimetry
This is like the Fat Bottom Bag of knitting huh? Of course I had to hop on the bandwagon and make one

Sorry for the terrible pics. I'm waiting for daylight so that I can take some better ones. Here is the free pattern.

The first one I made turned out HUGE. So I made a second one casting on just 80 stitches and then repeating row 5 only 10 times... it turned out perfect.

I used RHSS, Pink Camo and it still needs a button... now that I've made one I think I'll go get some SWS or Patons Classic Wool Merino and go for a really nice one

I started on one last night/early this morning. This is the first time I've done short rows, so it was quite interesting. I cast on 90 stitches and I think I'll do 10 or 11 repeats of row 5.

Yours looks amazing! I love the colors.

Pretty colors, and it looks cute on you! I haven't made one of these yet, but it's on my list. Did you have to adjust the size?

Yeah, I cast on 80 for this one and did 10 reps of row 5 instead of 15. It is a LITTLE snug so the second one I made I cast on 90... it was perfect
