This challenge came at a perfect time for me. I have been wanting to try my hand at designing a sweater and this was just the motivation I needed. It took just under three weeks to knit, and would have been finished sooner if I did not have to reknit all the details (cuffs, collar, neckline, BO at bottom edge...) Overall I am very pleased. I have had it on all day- and even had a stranger ask me where I bought it (a first for me!).

I have posted more pice on my blog http://auntieamandaknits.blogspot.com/2007/01/one-stitch-to-rule-them-all.html
Yarn:Caron Simply Soft (3 skeins) 315 yds per skein, color soft yellow (can't beat a $6 sweater!)
Needles (US sizes): sz. 6 circs, sz. 5 circs and dpn, sz. 10.5 circs
Pattern: my own top down raglan http://auntieamandaknits.blogspot.com/2007/02/sunshine.html
Notions: 4 buttons, stitch markers, yarn needle

I hope ya'll enjoy! Good luck to all that enter the challenge! It is so cool to see all the different ideas ya'll are coming up with. A big thanks to Lothruin for organizing all this! Kiss

That's beautiful, AWynkoop! The asymmetrical buttoned neckline gives the lace an "edge" I think. You did a great job designing and fitting.
