- Finished! I slide over the finish line on my back with one ski on my foot and one pole in my hand.
- This was my first ever crochet garment and I love it! The fit is great and I managed to follow the instructions with no problems whatsoever.
- My stitch gauge was tighter than the pattern so I made the largest size to get the fit I wanted. Given the problems I have with row gauge in knitting, I was spot on with the crochet. The irony – it burns!
