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.

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!!!!!
