I've fallen in love with this sweater from Bergere De France. Here's the link for the pattern http://www.bergeredefrance.fr/document/upload/tricotheque/bloc/193056_janv_270.pdf

It reminds me a lot of Calista's Alexander McQueen Knock Off Sweater. http://calistayoo.blogspot.com/2006/02/pattern-for-mcqueen-knock-off.html
If anyone knows french and is willing to translate it would very much be appreciated. I know there are french to english dictionaries and the like available however these have I have still never been able to completely and correctly translate a french pattern. I'm sure there are many other out there who would also love to knit this sweater.

Good question they look so nice in the photo but I know I'd have trouble.

I don't know French, but I've been working on a translation using a lot of knitting dictionaries like the ones linked above. I don't know if it's right at all, but when I'm done, I could post it and we'll see if it works out. Cheesy

And I'm probably going to be using a crapload of elastic to get it to hold up. It's just cute as hell, so I wouldn't even mind pinning it to me if necessary. Grin

Sorry to double post, but I finished the translation and thought I'd stick it up here. It was a fun distraction on a day when I should be tackling stacks and stacks of homework.

None of this is tested, btw. I want to finish my CPH before I start this, but since this thread came up, I thought I'd throw out my translation.

I checked all the math and everything seems to be in order. There are still bits that might be off, like for the front of the sweater; then there's the finishing section, which I didn't understand at all but decided to just leave alone. It's all seaming, and I think it might be self-explanatory? (Match x to x, y to y; sew collar to neck, etc.)

I also left out the crochet flowers, since I don't even want to attempt translating a French crochet pattern. Tongue
