I kinda "designed" my own sweater....I am sure someone,somewhere has done one like this, but until I see one, I am gonna call it my own.

Instead of working the pattern from the Carol Duvall Show, I am doing the following:

Using any type of yarn, and any size needles to maintain the size needed: I used size 10 needles and Peaches n Creme cotton yarn in Sea Mist......

Cast on 72 sts. Work the first few rows, or how ever many you want, for the border in garter st.Then begin stockinette st. or if you want continue in garter st throughout.

Work to desired length before begining armhole. Divide 20 sts. for the front, 32 for the back, and 20 for the front. Place each front on stitch holders. Work back to desired length of armholes. Bind off back. Work front pieces to match length of back. Bind off.

Now for the sleeves I cast on the number of rows in front and back part of the armhole, give or take a few sts. Call me wierd, but it works for me. Work arm pieces to desired length. Bind off.

Sew the tops of the front panels to the top of the back panel. Sew arm pieces together and sew into armholes. If you want, you can pick up and knit along the edge of the neck to make a collar or even attach hood

This isnt anything fancy. And this is the first time I have attempted to do something on my own. So if i mess up, dont criticize me too bad.
