I finished this yesterday, it's the Cobblestone Pullover by Jared Flood from the Fall 2007 issue of Interweave:

http://shop.interweave.com/store/Cobblestone-Pullover-P226C55.aspx

The yarn I used was a cotton-acrylic blend called Tatamy Tweed Worsted, in the color Burgundy.  I love this yarn, a good vegan tweed is hard to come by!

I made the smallest size the pattern called for, 39 1/2" chest and the only change I made to the pattern was to cast on a lot fewer stitches for the sleeves.  Thanks for looking, there are a ton (probably too many) more pics on my blog!

Cute! That's a great sweater - I've thought about making one for myself, too. The color you chose looks great on you, too.

I love your sweater and I am sooo jealous of your knitting skills  Grin  That color looks super fabulous on you too. I like yours better than the original.

Great Cobblestone and great color. Also, THANK YOU! Thank you for providing us with an affordable substitute yarn for this sweater. Any yarns that are comparable to Classic Elite Skye Tweed are $7.50+ for a 50g/110yd skein which ends up costing $90 or more! Who can afford that? Plus, call me lazy, but I'm a fan of machine washing and drying. The Tatamy Tweed Worsted is $5.75 for a 100g/180yd skein and it's machine washable. Hello, reality!

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.
