Homage to Melissa Mall

I fell in love with the Mini-Sweater pattern that Melissa designed. I don't know how many of them I made... both with the ocrrect neck pattern and the ones that somehow I goofed up!

In time, I wanted to experiment. So here is the result, my homage to Melissa.

The first 7 rows are Melissa's pattern, with my short hand notes so I know what I am doing). You can find her complete pattern at crochetuncut.com She has two different sizes there, where I only ended up with one.

Whenever I look at this pattern I can see it tied on a present for someoine who skis, or tied onto their ski jacket zipper. Like I said, I just fell in love with the basic pattern

Okay, here goes... Melissa's yoke pattern, my bodice pattern and a combination on the sleeves..
