My minisweater! Wore it out tonight and got many comments, all kind. It's the funniest looking thing I've ever knit and kind of my favorite. I love all of these green yarns and now they're together forever! This was a scrap-buster but I STILL have scraps so I think I'll make this lovely scrap shawl featured in Interweave, or a memories capelet...

I did do the spikes, but only on the neck and they need a blocking to be more pointed. I did a crochet edge on the sleeves to make a teensy ruffle. I love crochet edges!

I'll definitely be using this pattern again, it is flattering and fun, and so very versitile. Everyone is making such lovely versions, and none of them are the same!

hi. Stumbled upon this mini-along. I was knitting this mini-sweater but I got lost (I'm still learning) Hope you can help out with my questions.. Is the pattern working upwards or downwards? And which part is supposed to be the sleeves? (there are 5 sections but I'm not sure if its the 1st and 5th section, or the 2nd and 4th section) Thanx~ Btw, your minisweater looks great! =D
