So the crocheting saga continues with the creation of my first sweater! I know that sweaters may be a little out of season but I started it when it was in season. Then I proceeded to forget about it till this week when I busted out some mad skills and finished the bad boy. I hope you enjoy this crazy patternless sweater garb.

Mad skills indeed!  This rocks   Grin Cool Grin

So, if you had no pattern, is there a trick to it?  Any tips for someone else wanting to partake in a similar activity?

That is beautiful. I love the color and the fit looks great. I'm just kind of in awe.

Love the color and the sweater itself.  If you would be willing to write up a pattern I think myself and others would be interested! Smiley

I love it.  It looks like it fits great, is comfortable, and is cute to boot.  And all that with no pattern and no previous sweater crocheting experience...my mind is boggled.  I love it.  The long long sleeves, the neckline, the stitch used, the color.

What stitch is it?  Is it all one piece or is it seamed?  What weight of yarn/hook size did you use?
