So....here's the thing.  I saw this sweater/cardigan and IMMEDIATELY fell in love with it!  But, the place that makes it only produced and sold it for one season, and now I can't find it anywhere!  Now, I love to sew and make purses and such, but this is WAY over my head!  As you can see from the pics below, the sleeves are really complicated (that's why I love it!), and there are "curly-cues" at the bottom points of each side of the cardigan that I have NO idea how to replicate!

So, that being said, I would LOVE to have someone make it and then I could just buy it from you?  This is my first post, so if I'm not allowed to buy something directly from another craftster, someone please let me know!  (:

I also LOVE the beret as well, if anyone is that talented!  The color (which I would love to be the same), is said to be a woodsy Loden Green, and the fabric used is a cashmere/Silk/Wool Blend.  I would love to buy this from someone near the middle/end of September of this year.  The pic that has the outfit in grey is just to show the back of the cardigan.  And, I'm not sure if you can tell from the pictures, but the ends of the sleeves have the thumb-hole things at the end that cover your entire hand.

Please PM me with a price you feel is fair!

Thanks guys!

I don't think you can post to buy on here but maybe if you did a personal swap or something.  As for making it yourself...

The front to my eye kinda looks like a crescent roll not rolled properly so I'm guess laid flat it would be like an elongated triangle.  The sleeve at below the elbow looks mutton-ish so that's fairly straightforward too. If you're going to sew this grab some muslin and test it out would be my recommendation. If you're going to knit this check out the Leg O'Mutton at http://www.knittingfever.com/about/architect/7/
