I've not every crocheted myself anything wearable so I saw this pattern and it was free, and adorable, so I decided to try it. Here's my result and I LOVE IT!
It was a lot of fun and quick to make, I don't think I would use the variegated yarn again, but for the first attempt it's ok. I think I'll make myself at least one more in a different color, just waiting for the yarn to go on sale. The pattern is pretty good except the assembly instructions, they were a bit vague, took a bit of figuring to get it right. Thank God there were reference pics. Great project!
