The pattern is from Stephanie Japel's Fitted Knits. I read quite a bit about it before starting, I think there were a bunch of people who were disappointed with this pattern. I'm happy with how it turned out but I did make a few mods. Mostly: some waist shaping, ignoring the buttoned hip flaps and making the Box Stitch section shorter.

This is an easy, quick pattern, and it's not hard to customize to your own shape. (I'm by no means an expert). I would probably go a size up for the sleeves if I were to do this again... but other than that, I think I'll actually wear this!

You should definitely wear this. It looks great on you. So beautiful!

I just checked that book out from the library and I'm going to make the Cozy V-Neck sweater in it. That's going to be my first adult-sized sweater.

Beautiful color AND fit!  The little orange buttons are adorable.

Oh, it's just kittens.

Very nice.  I love the colour.

Wow, great job. It is so flattering both in terms of fit and color.

OOOHHH!  I really like that.  I have that book and now I want to make that pattern.  Well done!

It's beautiful! And I love your color choice. That sweater has been in my knitting queue since I bought Fitted knits about a year ago. Seeing yours makes me want to get a move on. I'm going to keep your mods in mind when I do cast on.
