Apologies for the lateness of this entry. It's been quite a busy day, one way and another, and I wanted to have this photo ready for uploading.
Here you go - I made it and it's quite nice. DD doesn't like the colours. I don't think they're that bad but the vivid colours are better, I think, and the yellow looks a bit startling in this photo. But the overall effect is lovely. What do you think?
The yarn should be cotton - that would fall a lot better. I've looked around for cotton yarn and cannot find a range that has enough really toning colours so I might have to do a colour repeat rather than have all differents - assuming I find an excuse to make another one, of course.
I also think that it could be made into a lovely 'pinafore' top by lengthening it and probably starting the sleeves a bit further down. The opening would be at the back and where the sleeves start it would be worked as a round (although part of the pattern is worked on the wrong side that would still have to happen.
