Starting a Cardigan Project!

Starting a Cardigan Project!

A couple of days ago I decided to get started on my first crochet sweater (not that I ever made one any other way...)!  I'm using a cheap sport weight cotton yarn from a grocery discounter, so it won't be too sad if this just doesn't work out. However, this is the pattern:

My yarn seems to be a little heavier than the one used by the pattern designer, so I'n using a slightly smaller hook and I still get the feeling it'll be slightly too big. I'd work the instructions for a smaller size, but I'm already doing the smallest one and don't feel comfortable making it smaller on my own. This is my first more complex wearable, after all.
I'm not even half way through the back piece, but have a look:

The color is pretty accurate in this picture, wow.
