This is the first sweater i have ever designed, i usually write patterns for baby clothes, but it turned out better than i had expected. I'm not sure why i chose to make the loopy collar, but the idea came to me in the middle of the night, and i decided to try it out. Your input is appreciated.

this is one of me wearing it, stupid idea to try to photograph myself Smiley

an upclose of the collar, although the actual colors of the yarn are much nicer in reality, they're shades of chocolate brown, camel, navy, and blue

I love it!! It turned out really cute. How did you make the collar? And what kind of yarn did you use?

Your sweater is gorgeous!
The loopie collar adds unique-ness to it.  Care to share how you did it?

The brown yarn is Lamb's Pride Bulky in Roasted Coffee, the other yarn is from spain and i threw away the label, but it's similar in thickness to Wool-Ease Sportweight Lion Brand Yarn.

The collar is made in loop stitch as follows:
Row 1: K1 and do not drop the st from the left hand needle, bring yarn forward between the two needles, wrap yarn twice clockwise around your left thumb then k1 in the same st again and drop the st from the left needle. Now transfer the 2 new sts on your right needle to your left needle and kn2 stitchec tog.

Row 2: K till the end of the row.

this forms the pattern repeat, the collar itself is a shawl collar, i can't share the whole pattern cause it was only written for size medium.

Lara, your sweater ROCKS! I hope to someday complete a sweater that looks so professional, so comfy, so trendy -- something I would be so proud to claim that I had made with my very own two hands!

You are going to be stylin', woman. And every time someone asks you where you got that cool sweater, you'll say, "I made it." And they will say, "excuse me? I thought for a minute you said you made that sweater." And you'll say "I did." And their mouths will drop open, and you will smile and blush behind your loopy collar...

Awesome job!

That is a stunning sweater! Great job! All I've designed so far is a dishcloth...

I would love to see the medium pattern. Or I could just squint really hard at the pictures and dream of making such a fine item!

I love it, I want it, I can't live without it  . . .

Is there a zipper joining the fronts, or did you just leave it open?
