I think this is wrong and it awful
I wanted this so much that until half way through, i realised this is too small for me and it is alittle difficult to follow the instructions. As this is knitted top, down and .......

but my colleague seems to like it alot and will probably give it to her and maybe sell her at cost.... spend about USD53.00 on this project.

I think is abit out of shape.....

I made a sweater not too long ago and it was too big. It looks great on a gal at work. You can rip it out and start again. I did on my latest, and I'm glad I did. I also splurged on the yarn and wanted to make something for myself out if it. Decide what's best for you!

That is so frustrating and disappointing! I'm so sorry. The color is beautiful though, and you COULD rip it out and make it bigger to fit yourself. I probably wouldn't want ti do it since it's completed, but at least it is an option.

I think it has this retro 60's A shape to it, you can wear it with a little black dress. The colour is gorgeous, I must say...

It's lovely!
I guess if you can find a good home for it you could feel a little bit good about that.

I'm sorry it didn't turn out how you'd hoped. What did you decide to do?

i might go for ripping it out and redo a new project rather than forgo the yarn.

shall look for a new design for this project!!!!
