The wrap around sweaters

Thsi Caron yarn, simply soft autumn red wrap around sweater is being worked on among other projects. I'ts going to be just like another one i made using SS blueberry color. I heavily modified it to fit my taste. This picture shows the sweater only about 14" long on back section, with needles stay attached. I work on this daily a few rows. It's done using size 4 needles. The blue one was done using size 2 knitting needles.

The pattern came from Maxon Dixon knitting and was to be a nightgown coverup. I didnt make mine as long as what could be worn for a dress.

The blue one shows the detail of the moss (seed stitch) for the border. I didn't make the reenforcing neckband. I did make slant pockets in the seams (not in the pattern.
