Well this is probably my second ever knitted garment and while I'm trying to up my game and work on my knitting skills I figured I can offer you guys a Not so perfect but completely adjustable and simple pattern.
As you can see even though I WET-BLOCKED the pieces they still curled up at the edges, which I don't mind so much at the top but the bottom is driving me insane. I may have to give it another try or find a different blocking method.
