Mine came out a bit different than I thought, but that’s not necessarily bad or good, just different. I think my choice of yarn was the biggest difference.This called for a worsted weight alpaca/merino blend. I just used very cheap Red Heart from Walmart. I had a partial skein sitting around from something else and decided to use it to see if I could even do this pattern. Then if it was totally awful I wouldn’t feel bad. LOL. I think were I to make this again, which is a real possibility since I do like it very much, I’m going to use one size smaller needles. This called for 7’s. I also didn’t really understand the 3 needle bind off, so I think next time I would do a kitchener stitch for the bottom. Still, I am happy with how it came out. I didn’t put on a button and now that it’s done, not sure I’m going to with this one. I’m using it already though and am happy with my first try on it.
