MOTHBALLIN’ MONDAY: Taking the football away from this sweater

Knit in Pinguin Coeur de Laine and Cascade 220

So I’d been eyeing this pattern for a long time, and when I got about 1200 yards of superwash at a local yarn swap, I figured I’d take the plunge.  I’d made a red striped handknit dress prior to this and thought this one would also work for me.  Yeah, about that:

I’d been a little physically uncomfortable wearing this due to the HUGE collar and snug sleeves, but looking at this photo I see that the thing is just a hot mess.  The pattern would look great on a taller, more athletic girl, but it just didn’t work for me.

Frogging this to make Miette, a design that will work much better for my figure.
