I'm SO proud to finish this lovely leaf pullover. So nice!
The pattern came from Bernat's "All Alpaca (http://www.bernat.com/patternbook.php?PBS=530165)" pattern book, using Bernat Alpaca (http://www.bernat.com/product.php?LGC=alpaca) yarn. I am a blogger for Bernat, and this is my latest completed project for them. This particular project has not been posted on the blog yet, but keep your eyes peeled!

I decided to make half-sleeves instead of long sleeves, because they are more comfortable for me.

Oh wow, Sandy! That pullover is simply divine! Perfect knitting, as usual! You really chose a perfect color for the design, as well as for your blonde self! You look beautiful!

Love it to pieces!

Sandy, this sweater is great! I really like the shorter sleeves. Have been enjoying your blog on the Bernat site as well.

I love that sweater, it's one of those designs that is wonderful in it's elegant simplicity. The color also compliments you very well. That would be the perfect spring/summer sweater down here.

Thank you all for the sweet compliments! :muah:
I really love the sweater. This is only my second sweater, and my first top-down sweater. It was fun and easy to knit!

This will be perfect for our fall and winter weather in the Carolinas. If the weather gets too cold for it, I'll just wear a scarf and my big coat. :thumbsup:

Angela, this design would work well for spring and summer if it was knit with cotton yarn. My sweater was made with alpaca blend yarn, so it's WARM!!

Thank you, my friends! :hug:
I've never had a sweater this nice before. It's especially nice since I was able to make it myself. :)

I love the design! The detail at the neckline brings the most flattering attention upward towards your face! Perfectly knitted, too! What a talent you are, my dear!
