I converted this pattern from the crocheted version I designed for an upcoming publication.  I think it looks pretty good, though I had trouble with the yarn and intarsia.  The yarn frays way too much making the weaving in ends process a nightmare.  I'm going to try the sweater again using fair isle for the color work instead of intarsia.  Less ends to deal with.  This may take care of my problem.  We'll see.

The sweater is for my daughter who is modeling it below.

I absolutely love everything about this. The hearts for the skully eyes, the colors and the shape of the shirt rocks my socks off! Great job!
