This sweater is from the Knitting Pure & Simple Neckdown Pullover for Women #9724 made with Schaefer "Elaine" color Mary Breckenridge (from the Memorable Women series). I was looking for a simple pattern to show off the yarn.
You can see some "pooling" of color in the sleeve but it is identical on each side so I think it looks like its supposed to be there.
For some reason the picture makes the yarn look lighter in some places, I think it's the flash. In reality it is very even and the darker color. This is a very easy pattern and I worked it up in just a couple weeks.
Now it's on to finish my CPH and then I can start knitting for the new GRANDBABY:woot:

That was my first sweater pattern and I liked it a lot. I ended up with mine a little too large, but I wear it anyway sometimes. ;)
It does show off the yarn well and you did a great job on it!

Looks very comfortable. Does the self striping yarn make all those sort of wedge shaped sections with you just doing regular straight rows? It makes a very interesting effect however you did it. :-)

This wasn't my first sweater, I've done many. It was a very simple pattern because of the yarn, and also because I made this pattern for my daughter for Christmas and thought it looked really comfy.
Elaine is a thick and thin yarn that I didn't think would look good with lots of ribbing or cables. Add to that the varigated yarn and I wanted a pattern that would show, just the yarn.
I do like the color pooling in this case, looks a bit like intentional elbow patches.

That's very nice. I actually like the pooling on the sleeves!

Very pretty. That's neat how both elbow colors came out that way!
