It looks a bit retro to me, but my friend promised to wear / use it.
Retro's not always a bad thing. It looks nice... what's it look like when worn?

I don't know. I madeit for a high school friend. She loves it and says she wears it alot. I had to re-make it as the initial version was too stiff due to needles being too small and stitched too tight. I switched to size 13 needles and a looser stitch but maintained the pattern and it's much better.
