I have to agree with all the comments, despite it not turning out how you wanted, you look amazing. Thanks for the inspiration!

This looks great on you. I love your work. I am glad you let me know about the arms, I have this pattern and will wait until I know how to adjust the arms :) Thanks!

I just finished making this and have the same problem with the arm holes. You look stunning in it. After I finished it off with the 5/8" hem all along the edges it truly fit much better. It's made to sit off the shoulder toward the back, on the shoulder forward the way we normally wear a sweater or coat. I'll post my pics and review later. I love how you belted and just came back from picking up a couple of matching belts for mine.

Oh well, at least you gave it a try. You look great in the picture, though!

Ha! All of my pictures are taken in the bathroom mirror, too. Now as for this cardigan, I LOVE it with the wide belt, which really shows off your tiny waist. I hope you wear it lots. :o)

I have this pattern and was going to make it this weekend but when I saw the hole cutting I changed my mind. However, it is cute on you.

Fabulous! It looks great belted up. Do you think you could sew a strip of elastic along the shoulder line to bring the armscye in a bit?

Sorry the fit is not what you wanted. However you look great in it.

Well, you look terrific. Too bad it's a hassle to wear.

It looks great! Wear it a time or two before deciding to keep, toss, or donate.

Even with the arm hole issues it looks great on you! Don't toss it! Make something else from it, the fabric looks wonderful! Nora :)

Stylist. Sorry my iPad is bugging me tonight! I'm also in the STL area and hancock's bargain fabrics are the best for finding knits.
