Sweater for my Aunt

So I haven't posted anything lately because I have been re-doing this sweater for my aunt for Mother's Day (Yes, I know it was months ago).  I started this with plenty of time, but I wasn't happy with the finished product so I started over.  The pattern is written terribly, so I guessed at half of it (apparently wrongly).  And it did not fit correctly.  Even with proper gauge, it did not come out the second time to fit the way I wanted it to.  I guess I am going to have to start making everything extra extra large because I don't know anyone who could wear any of the other sizes the way the pattern is written.  All the patterns I have tried so far seem to be running so small.

Here is a close up of the pattern so that you can see the pretty yarn:

I'm not sure if it's going to come across on the pictures, but the sweater is styled like a blazer and can pull together if you want it to.  This is the ring I used as a closure (ignore the stitch marker)

Now, let's see what else I can make!  I imagine I would get a lot more done if I could quit doing everything twice!

  1. Oh! This is soooo beautiful! Although you have to do it twice, I think now the joy is much greater than if you left the first time ... so extra bonus to this lovely cardigan.
