Grace, from The Daily Knitter. Made from Schoeller Stahl Portofino (cotton/acrylic/nylon). This turned out much shorter than expected, but this goes with what is "in style" so it is all good. I hated it seaming it up, but it looks nice and casual (and warm) on. It used a lot more yardage of my sub yarn than expected but it was black so reordering was easy. I single croch*t'd around the edge and was too lazy to figure out the "shrimp stitch". I think it looks fine.

Oh, and obviously I had to lighten the photo, couldn't be bothered to change tanks!
