This was a lot of fun to make.  Sorry the pic isn't brighter; indoor photo with so-so camera.  I'll see if I can get someone to take an outdoor shot.



I used sport weight yarn, so there's no bulk.  And it worked up really fast.
Details on this entry of my blog, progress pics a couple entries before that. 

Thanks for looking!  Would love to hear what you think.  Among other things, I'm debating whether to add sleeves.

oh no sleeves, most definitely. Unless you add the neckline motif to the cuffs or something similar.. hmm..

It's lovely. I agree, no sleeves. It's a perfect summer sweater.

I love this sweater on you.

No sleeves, but what you could do is make a set of arm warmers (like leg warmers) following the pattern for the sweater but made so you can remove them really easy.  I know I saw another sweater with arm warmers somewhere on line.

It's gorgeous! I vote no sleeves too because it's spring!

Thanks, everyone!  No sleeves, then.  The cap sleeve stretched out a bit, so I'll put in a reinforcing border. 

Just need to share that I almost lost the sweater today.   Shocked I was on the bus in San Francisco and the zipper on someone's #$%@# bag caught on the back of my sweater--this very one.  it got all stretched out as I got carried along, and I was terrified the woman would walk right off the bus and leave a gaping hole in my back.  Fortunately, I got her attention and she managed to detangle.

What a great idea!  I'll work on it.

Awesome job,no sleeves, it looks perfect just the way it is.
A number of years ago, during the chaos of Christmas shopping at the local mall I had a woman's purse catch a scarve I had just finished, the first "wearable" project I ever finished.  I believe it was the first time I wore it!!!.  She actually acted like it was my scarf's fault, was upset with me!!!!!
