I think you have a winner, not only is the pattern simple, the style is elegant, and the photography is well planned;   i love the subtle colors, and the feeling of first blush of   Spring that you have captured:   Excellent job!  And to the person who wrote the passive aggresssive comments, how about celebrating our peers!  "mundane ?"

Thank you Diane - you understood the idea behind!

Either you show the neck or you wear a silk shawl....  in my poor English I cannot better explain some of my projects, I just show, what I have done.

Ofcourse on the hanger the sweater's form may look strange, but on the person who wears it, it fits well.
The neckline was planned so, if the collar should have been thighter, I would have knitted it that way ;-)

Love this sweater! Wish there was a pattern.

Beautiful, simple, classic sweater!  I live south of the Mason-Dixon line and would definitely wear it.   There are so many different fibers it could be done in to accomodate different climates and indivudal preferences.

I love the neck line.  It is feminine and can be worn many different ways... by itself, with a scarf or different types of collars or a dickie.

A nice creative well executed sweater.  Congratulations.

At first glance, this does look to be a very nice looking sweater.  However, have you ever tried to wear a pull-over sweater?  Perhaps in Minnesota, in the dead of winter.  Otherwise, the neck line is way too large.I think a few more decreases are in order.  85 to 90 sts would be a good range.  Otherwise, the Raglan sleeves are great and make for a really good fit.  Not sure exactly what stitches you used in your yoke and cuff design, but they work well.  Otherwise, a fairly mundane and easy sweater to knit.  Thaks for shariing.

Perfectly comprehensible.  I just don't think I'm experienced enough to figure out sizing without a pattern!  Maybe in a few years  :-)

Thank you, that's very kind
There is no pattern for the sweater, it is freestyle knitting ;-)
The cuff's/collar's pattern is:** perl two together... - next row: knit two out of one. Then knit two rows and repeat from **
Is it comprehensible?
