it's stunning !! And it looks much nicer with the yarn/colors you chose than the original from the magazine.

How does yours behave when you held, does it stretch as much as the one in the magazine ?

Congrats !

Thanks so much !! yep, still thinking I should try and make a more boyish little cardigan to match those blue booties.

And. Also wanted to share my friends' booties and bolero : she used 2 strands of Drops Alpaca held together for those, for a new baby girl born right  when she had just finished the booties. :-)

I'm in love with the way she styles her photos !!! Tongue  Grin

Thanks !  Grin

And no, doesn't really restrict my movements. Not that I wear it to go dancing though.. Wink

If I ever make a second one though, I'll only knit 4 wedges instead of 5, so that the sleeve doesn't start too low (nearly at elbow on this one)

This is beautiful! Love the design and colors. It looks so soft and warm. Smiley

Thanks, yes you're right it is soft and WARM... which is good as I live in the french Alps, and always cold ! :-P

Ha thanks to you both. And I love that, Crazy awesome is probably what defines this sweater ! :-) (& happy too, as it makes me happy each time I wear it !)

I used to be a knitter... then discovered crochet and haven't touched the needles much in the last years... but when a friend posted about Stephen West's amazing design, I knew I had to make it.. like NOW !  I went straight to my huge stash and dug all sorts of yarns in tones of plum and orange. Some super old vintage french yarns, some handspun and hainpainted that I had been saving for a special project... and i'm so thrilled I got to mix and use all together !!

That pattern was so clever and well thought, I loved every minute of the process. Although I have to say that using so many completely different yarns led to having to frog and reknit several sections... (not enough yarn to finish, or sometimes yarn proved to be too thin compared to others, or just didn't blend in fine..

As for the odd shape... it's not very practical when you lift your arms (everyone sees my tummy!) or to fit in a winter coat...
Yet I'm totally in LOVE with this sweater.   

What do you think: Crazy or awesome..?   ;-)
