I had a load of this unbranded merino which I picked up for a steal due to a streaky dye-lot, in a gorgeous mustard colour. It probably took me around three weeks working sporadically to crochet this up, using 8ply it came together pretty fast.
I used the Jumper pattern from Panda's Modern Vintage pattern book, tweaking the sleeve shape and length also shortening the body to more of a cropped length.

I think it turned out pretty sweet, and is lovely in the cold weather we've been having.
The colour probably lies somewhere between the two images   Wink

Thanks for looking  Cheesy

Looks so comfy, and the pattern looks really great on a sweater. I'm surprised I didn't see that on clothing before. Great project!

Thank you both,  Cheesy
I must admit, I had my resevations about the pattern... thinking it looked a little 'granny square'- but as it was coming together I thought it came out pretty nice.
Although, the hems were supposed to be ribbed and I ended up with a sort of basket weave type stitch...  Roll Eyes

That's really beautiful!  I rarely see a crocheted sweater I like, but yours turned out so great, I had to comment and let you know. Smiley  Great job!

I like to make things...

Beautiful!! I can't get that link to work so I'll look it up...

oops! sorry about the link failure,  Embarrassed
I have linked it to the knitting shop I purchased it from- which may not be entirely helpful but you can see the cover of the pattern book.
Thanks for your comments  Cheesy

I absolutely love that stitch! And the color is one of my favorites. This is so cute. Gah, the last thing I need to do is buy another crochet book, but I might have to have this pattern.

The pattern book has a few nice pieces I'll be putting on my list to make, which is great- I'm always a bit miffed when I really want a whole pattern book, for just one or two patterns  Cheesy

Cute! (streaky dye lots are actually my favorite!)
