I finally finished my red sweater. It's a dutch pattern, the yarn I used is schachenmayr punto. It's 55% cotton and 45% acrylic.

Wow! What a great fit and such a stylish sweater. Can you take a close-up photo of the lace pattern? I'd love to see the detail.

This is so cute! I totally saw this pattern, I could swear, in a Phildar catalog. I love it! checking . . . Yes, Phildar Tendances Winter 1, so if anyone wants the pattern, this catalog is also translated into English.

It looks great on you!

You both are right, it is a sweater from a phildar pattern. I adjusted the sleeves, because I don't like the way phildar makes the sleeves and I wanted long sleeves instead of shorter ones.

Since phildar is french, I'm sure they have translated in other languages than only dutch.

Sure. Here they are:

I couldn't make close up pics while wearing the sweater, but I think this shows the pattern as it is when I wear it.

I wore it yesterday, and it fits perfect. I only hope the sleeves won't shrink, because they are just perfect now. Otherwise, I think I'll try to pick up stitches at the bottom of the sleeves and increase the ribbing.
