It turned out SO well! When i saw that pattern, I thought, "No thanks" but you are the second one who posted the finished product and it looks beautiful.

Yes it is! The pattern was not difficult at all. The stretchiness of the fabric makes the sizing very forgiving. I just bought some Happy Feet sock yarn to make one for my mom.

Ahhh...I love it in red! I made one not too long ago in black. The pattern is monotonous but easy, for those of you who are wondering about it.

GREAT job!!!
