Here is my flower power, except with no flowers. I was thinking of adding a knit flower to it, but I thought it might look too busy, with all the stripes. I still like how it turned out, considering it was my second sweater.  Smiley

I used Brown Sheep lamb's pride, which made the gauge different. I had to change all the numbers of casting on and increases. The only thing I don't like is the sleeve caps. I didn't realize that they had to fit over the shoulder, so part of the sleeve fits on top of the shoulder. If I made the sweater again, I would make raglan sleeves. Otherwise, I would have made the sweater a lot tighter, so the sleeves fit right. If that makes sense.  Wink

It looks fantastic! I don't see anything wrong at all with the sleeve caps... it looks like a good fit from here! Kudos!
