I have wanted this sweater since I saw the movie, The Holiday three years ago. I was not a knitter at the time, nor did I ever think I would be. I have to say, that this pattern is written exactly like the one Cameron Diaz wears in the movie. It is a little bit boxy, a little bit A-line, a little bit cropped. I made no adjustments to the pattern, even thought this is not the most flattering shape on me.
After doing a wet block, it grew, and grew, and grew. I thought I had ruined it because it got so stretched out. Thanks to a very good Friend, I was able to save it. I sent Leslie a very desperate email, and she came to the rescue.
