I love the look of this shirt and was instantly attracted to it when I saw it in the Knitting Tradition magazine. I wanted to make it bigger then the pattern...Well I succeed in that. I made it to big for me which of course delighted my partner. It's to big for him but looks "comfy" instead of ridiculous. He doesn't care as long as he gets to something I made. I knitted a herringbone stitch at the bottom as a hem but realized it was pulling the yarn and making it pucker which turned it into a 17th Century Blouse. So I ripped it out and just kept w/ the original pattern. I'll have to make this again for me and next time I'll follow the directions.
In the last picture showing the back he's flipping the camera off w/ both hands. See the juvenile humor I live with. ;)
