My daughter's friend was over yesterday when I was modeling it, and she thought I had bought it!
I can understand why; it's a really great fit on you,and looks very professionaly made!

That is just adorable. Shame on you for not swatching. LOL Actually I'm just jealous that you had such good luck without bothering. What no ripping and redoing? You were very fortunate. A perfect fit. It looks just great on you.

Ugh...I hate swatching. I do it for socks and NEVER get gauge. Ever. I know about how much bigger my gauge runs, so I can wing it from there.

I did have to tink back a few rows a couple of times. This pattern is really easy, and you know, by the even rows, if you've made a mistake. All of those yo's drive you crazy but are easily fixed.

I was going to say I hate swatching. But I don't hate swatching so much as I hate never learning my real gauge that way anyway. I do it and then usually my project becomes another swatch. I am just not a very good machine; my knitting doesn't run the same size all the time. I've thought a good knitting name for me would be "Big Swatches". LOL

I'm glad you had such good luck on this project.

You totally could! If you can pick up stitches, you can do this pattern! If you can't, there are some great how-to videos!!

It's all knit as one piece, so there's NO seaming!!!
