proud to present my first free pattern

this is a lovely little wrap that i made up myself, it is top down all one piece worked back and forth and in the round. i think the instructions are written a bit different but it made it a lot easier to follow in my opinion, if you have any problems with it let me know and i will work it out with you, as this is an untested pattern. i made the small/medium for myself but the large/Xlarge size is as of now not tested. i hope this works out for everyone! so without further ado here is a picture of front and back and the pattern will follow below! it comes in 2 sizes S/M and L/XL

Pattern notes:
This pattern is a wrap around sweater that ties shut in back, it is also done completely in one piece. For this pattern you must understand working in the round and attaching and picking up where the stitches were left off. This pattern is also written a bit different than normal, below are the *to* repeats, &to& and [to] repeats that will be used throughout the ENTIRE pattern, please understand this before you start so there is no confusion. Also all treble shells will be worked in the space between the DCs and not actually into either and will be thusly referred to as "next space".
