I actually finished it the day of the Stitch and Pitch, but I was too depressed to talk about it. When I blocked it to smooth out the shoulder ridges ( I WANTED ridges or I wouldn't have crocheted the sleeves on from the outside, they were just a bit too pronounced), the sleeves stetched like 4 inches (and my mom has short arms)!
Well, I just bunched the sleeves up (being careful not to bunch the shoulders) as it dried, and, as you can see, it all came out just fine in the end.
The pattern is called Melon Blast (it was originally knitted in plain watermelon red); it's from the Spring 2004 Knitter's magazine. I made the sleeves full length, crochetd it all together, and crocheted the neckband, but other than that I just followed the pattern and it worked fine except for my one night of extra-long-sleeve-related-nightmares. I used the Manos de Uruguay Cotton Stria (yellow color #218 and pistacio? lime? color #204), and though the doubled strands were a bit hard on my wrists at times, the softness of the fiber made up for it--besides my mom is worth it!
