I've been knitting very complicated things for a very long time, but there's just something about reading a pattern I can only take so much of.  So I picked up the sketchbook and the calculator and came up with this short-sleeved improvisation and knitted with a concept.  I'm so happy I did! 









Constructive criticism is appreciated.  And compliments too, of course.  Tongue

This is money! I really like it... If you should decide that, even though you don't like knitting from patterns, you would like to write one up for this, it would go straight into my ravelry queue (hint, hint Smiley

I'm definitely working on it!  I have pretty detailed notes from construction, but I really want to make it more of a 'recipe' so it's uniquely fitted.

Wow, that is soooo beautiful! I love cables and love rounded necklines, so this sweater pretty much does it for me. Great work! Thanks for sharing.
