All-Season Shell Reviewed by Lea on 2012-09-05 ****
Despite checking my gauge and doing everything by the book,the collar was so small that i couldn't pass my head through it.
I had to lengthen the shoulder straps as they are really small.
Otherwise the pattern is easy to follow.

It took me several weeks to finish this shell. I will increase the legnth next time. Ironicly I made it in almost the same color in a different yarn. I love it and will make it again.

I agree wwth Kelli Sutton. I am not a tight knitter and still had a hard time getting it over my head. I suggest that you start decreases for the neck/front about 6 rows earlier.

Otherwise, beautiful garment.

I made this shell in Vanna's Choice Yarn since I could not find any microspun yarn in the stores. It took me a little over a week to do the whole thing. I am ultimately happy with the shell but since I knit tight, it was hard to pull over my head. The arm holes were also a little too big for me. I am going to have to make some changes to the pattern but it is a very easy pattern and knits up quick and nice.

I made this shell in black Microspun. I used the next larger needle as I am a thick around the middle and didn't want it to be too tight. It worked out really well and is sooo comfortable. I know I will get many years of wear out of it and it is great to have classic patterns that will not go out of style. Thanks for the neat pattern! Ellie in Texas

pattern is easy to follow even for a begginer, and the result is satisfying :-)

This pattern turned out so well. In addition I knitted some flowers that I put around the neckline - front and back.

This was, indeed, very easy. It is well fitting and attractive. I think I will make another one, but will adjust it to make it a little longer (I am long waisted).

All-Season Shell Reviewed by Karen Mollung on 2010-05-20 *****
The pattern is very easy. I agree that this pattern is not forgiving if you have a tummy... I added sleeves also. Now I like it better.

All-Season Shell Reviewed by Cory Rieken on 2010-04-18 ***
I used a thicker yarn and came out with a very boxy shell. I was hoping for a fitted shell like the picture, normally wear a medium and got a baggy shell. This was only my second apparel project, though, so I learned a lot. Check your gauge and adjust from there.
