All done! I’m thrilled with how this turned out. It fits just right. The smallest size would’ve been too big for me, so I cast on fewer stitches and adjusted the numbers as I went.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t very pleased with the yarn. It’s a chained yarn, and there were too many sections where it looked like it was starting to come apart. At first I was cutting all those bits out, but eventually I only cut out the parts that were really bad. Maybe this was just a bad batch?

Finally starting this! I’ve had the pattern/yarn in my queue/stash for ages. I’m winging this as I go. I made a swatch but my gauge was off and I didn’t want to make another, so I just guessed which needles would be best and cast on. I also cast on fewer stitches than the smallest size, since that would’ve been too big for me.
