It is a beautiful sweater . You are doing really well on your version so far considering you do not have a pattern :)

Great work, Valentina! You are a wonderful knitter! I've never been able to look at a sweater and 'devise' a pattern for it, so I admire you for that ability! We're all looking forward to more photos of your creation!!

Wow, I am so impressed! I can't imagine looking at something and being able to just figure the pattern out in my head like that LOL

Looks like you're definitely on the right track! Amazing! I don't think I could create the pattern simply from looking at the finished product. Great job!

You have an excellent eye for duplicating patterns; that's quite a gift; and your color choice is very nice.

Is there a possibility that the original is machine made? Traveling, I've seen some very detailed knitted items that I thought were handmade, but were not.

Wow - What an awesome talent you have to be able to just look at something like that and re-create it! It looks like it is going to be just beautiful!

Thank you for yours nice words!

I often work without pattern, so it is much easier to me this way.

You did a great job, Valentina.
You are a gifted knitter.
For me too is easier to knit following a picture than trying to follow a pattern.
And how many times the best designs are not free!
Gorgeus vest. Congratulations!

I am finding as I learn new knitting skills, that I come up with what I want to make, or my dear daughter describes it to me, and I end up taking off without a pattern, but THIS IS IMPRESSIVE!~ I think it will be a L O N G time before I will attempt anything with this much detail. Keep up the wonderful work of heart~! :heart:

Yes knitting from just looking at the picture is a gift. Both my grandmothers could do that. They crochet and wow the things they made was amazing. I put you in that area of amazing work, keep it up.
