Wow, I finished! This is a great pattern, so easy to follow.
jejune did a wonderful job of designing this and writing the instructions (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=154869.0), and it was a quick and challenging first sweater for me.

The buttons are on only temporarily, and you can't really tell because of the flash but they are GREAT rose/flower metal buttons. I LOVE them. I will put them on permanently after I get this dry cleaned.

I am still waiting to figure out edging on the neck (I don't crochet).



I encourage EVERYONE to knit this great garment. There is a knitalong on here for it, and everyone there has nothing but praises for jejune's wonderful pattern! I know I will be watching out for other original things she designs for myself to knit Smiley

btw, I know the button band looks like one side is longer, but it's not. It's the (temporary) placing of the buttons!

That's so cute, and I love the colour.  I think it will look great with the silver buttons too.

It looks a lot like the sweater I'm wearing right now  Grin I love it--you've done a great job! And don't be afraid to give the crocheted neckline a try. It's not as hard as it sounds. If you've ever picked up stitches along an edge to knit, you've got all the skills required.

Awesome! I've loved this design ever since I saw Jejune's original jacket. This has just moved up in my projects queue!
