I have finished this after shelving it for months. Pleased with the result but can see where i could improve it. Tongue




Thanks for looking!

ETA
There is a seam running down the neck of the shawl collar. I suspect that was meant to be at the bottom but I found the pattern a bit vague and should have placed the armholes elsewhere??

This look great! I'd totally wear that. ^_^ I see nothing wrong with it. (But I'm not a knitter, I want to learn how to knit though.)

There he was, painting the leaves on the trees with different designs. My only question was, why turn something so natural into something so man-made?

Sometimes it's knit and sometimes it's crochet.

Fabulous! I have started this pattern a couple of times and just can't seem to finish.  I love how yours looks and it just might be the inspiration that I need to start working on mine yet again. (3rd times the charm)

I LOVE this! What a great sweater!

I second Little Vintage...I would definitely wear that!

I'm totally at a loss as to how that could be improved, I think it looks great!! I really like the trim! (Icord?)

This is GORGEOUS!!!  I didn't notice the seam either until you pointed it out.  Does not appear to take away from the look at all, IMHO Smiley  Great job, totally wisting this.

This looks really difficult.  You should be really proud that you finished it and I would definitely wear it, if it were mine.
