I love to crochet, but I've always hated how things that are crocheted *look* like they've been crocheted.  But this doesn't!  I love the stitch, and that it was done without a pattern.  I'm horrible at counting stitches, so I try to avoid patterns all together, but none of my creations have ever looked this good Smiley  You and the sweater both look fab!

For those who wanted the stitch pattern -this youtube video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ieHRRYpFC14 seems to be it.

I really really like this jumper - think I need to make something like it for myself. Once I've finished a few other projects

Wow, if that's your first sweater, you did an excellent job!  Not only do I like the stitch detail (thanks for posting the link to the video) but I like how the sleeves are a little extra long and slouchy.  I'm not sure if you did that on purpose or if that's how the design turned out, but it's still great nonetheless.  Wear that with pride!

Awesome sweater.  I keep coming back to it, thinking I need to make one for myself for the winter (which in Southern California is an oxymoron).  But I cannot hope to accomplish it as well as you have!  My first big project I tried still sits underneath my bed, waiting for me to finish it, and unfortunately for me and it I probably will end up frogging it and making it into a hapless attempt at this jumper.  ah, the frivolities of being awake at almost 3am on a day when you have not one but two parties to attend and a gift to finish, and one to start.  And of course, I'm sitting here procrastinating on Craftster and cut out + keep. . .ugh!

Kudos on sweater.  I actually found the video before I saw you posted it.  Are you the creator of said video??

Yep. I posted the video online and then waited a few days and some awesome person posted it on here for me!
