Last week I destroyed my comfy sweater. Clearly I needed a new one.
And here it is  Smiley it's a seamless, topdown raglan sweater

I'm happy because I tried short rows bust darts for the first time and, though they're far from perfect, they work.

I love this!  The color is great, and edging on the neck and sleeves is great!

Did you do this from a pattern, or is it your own design?  I'd love a copy of the pattern if you don't mind sharing Smiley

Never argue with a stupid person.
First they'll drag you down to their level, then they'll beat you with experience.

Teamwork...... means never having to take all the blame yourself.

thank you Smiley
I made it based on this tutorial : http://www.io.com/~cortese/crafts/raglan.html except I lowered the neckline and only did the raglan increases every three rows;  and when  the sleeves were elbow length, I made an increase per stitch to get the bell shape.
Also I added dart busts thanks to this pdf file : http://pursuitoffiber.com/PDFs/bust_dart_tutorial.pdf ; it is for knitting but it works with crochet  Smiley
And there is a bit of waist shaping, also it's not apparent here
The edging is based on another one I wasn't able to do, so I made a variation  Grin

I can try to decipher my work notes but it will be difficult as I tend to doodle on them and I changed a lot of details while making the sweater.

That is scrumptious.  It's lovely.  I have yet to make any kind of sweater, but your is enough to prompt jealous desires.
