Here is a sweater I recently finished after working on it for over a year.  I made it up as I went along, which as usual meant reworked the sleeves four times and the trim at least three.  But it turned out okay in the end.

It also meant that I have no pattern per se, but it's basically a square raglan neck, fitted sleeves, and then I worked the bust decreases into the back to make that sort of pleat back there.  Then I worked a turning leaf pattern (in the round) from one of my stitch dictionaries into it, and added four full repeats where my hips start to widen.  I started them by working in the extra stitches gradually until there were enough to add a full repeat.  Finally, a stockenette band around the bottom to make it tunic length and voila! 

Here are photos.  Please ignore cheesy grin and also the pajama pants.

I love it!  Top down raglans are the best.  The turning leaf pattern looks really good too.  What yarns did you use?

P.S. I think your sweater looks rockin' with pj pants  Wink
