happy new year everyone,

i just came across this awesome knitted sweater here http://www.stitchdiva.com/ProductInfo.aspx?productid=SDS-026

is there anyone out there who can create a pattern for the same sweater to do in crochet??? please please please i am so in love with this. or is there anyone who can knit it for me? i am really bad at knitting or i would do it instantly and delay all my other projects.

i would love to get many replies

life would be an altogether supreme experience if i had a colored pencil long enough to draw on the ceiling

i would love to do (personal) swaps

If you want to do the raglan sleeve version, there's an easy to follow top down sweater template at Crochetme for the "Sweet" sweater that you can adapt:  http://www.crochetme.com/sweet

With a waistband and more shaping, my version of Sweet looks like this: 

(Description of waistband and other modifications at http://redcrochet.blogspot.com/2006/10/sweet-finished-or-almost.html)

To make a crochet version of the StitchDiva sweater, you would do the Sweet sweater in single crochet with a sport weight or finer yarn, widen the beginning neckline (see template at crochetme) and lengthen  the sleeves.  Yarn choice is really key; the yarn in the StitchDiva pattern is multi-tonal.  If you need help with the plunging neckline, let me know.
