V-Stitch Wrap-around Sweater Reviewed by Lynn Pope on 2012-10-09 **
I have to say that I was disappointed with this one. Maybe it is just because I chose the largest size to accomodate my chest . But the fit is awful! The armpits are down near my elbows instead of where they should be. I followed the gauge and the pattern correctly and the pattern is quite easy to read. But like a lot of patterns, they don't seem to understand fitting to larger bodies. You can't just add stitches and make everything bigger. I only wish mine fit as nicely as the one in the picture. It's good enough to wear around the house for warmth, but it will never leave the house. I was hoping for an elegant long sweater like the one in the picture. Instead I have something that is loose in the shoulders and very restricted thru the underarm area because of how low it goes. Maybe you should try fitting sweaters on larger bodies instead of just multiplying the stitches. Just because it works on paper, doesn't mean it works out on the human body.

The pattern was really easy to read and it was very fun to make. Im relativly new to crochet so I wasnt sure how I was going to make the arm holes but it was a lot easier than I thought. Though I didnt use the instructed sized hook (on purpose) it turned to be a fantastic project

Great pattern. Really easy to make. And it didn't take long to work up. I made the sleeves longer and will use the leftover yarn to make a matching skinny scarf instead of a belt.

Very easy to do, simple instructions. Style can be modified easily with different edgings.
