What materials did you use? Fleece from my stash

What are you most proud of? Adjusting the fit! I chose the XL without measuring myself first. It was way too big. So I took it in on the side and ended up with an L fit on top and an M fit on the bottom! Adjusting the size was very easy. I just put on the sweater the wrong way and pinned it to the fit I wanted.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Measure yourself and don't be afraid to make changes!

Looks so snuggly! I like the ribbing on the cuff & hem.

I like the rib knit on cuffs and bottom. I have noticed it is hard to get a good fit around the bottom, due to bust line if you have a fuller bust, then the bottom curves up in the middle. This makes it more even and not noticeable at all!!!

You are right! I looked much bigger without it. The rib knit cinches it in a bit and distributes it more evenly all the way across :-)
