Floral Fantasy Pullover Reviewed by amalie davidson on 2014-05-20 ****
This is quick to make up and it is easy to avoid all of the suggested sewing with carefully placed slip stitch joins. I made this with an Alpaca/wool blend that is very similar in texture to the yarn pictured. I think the pattern runs a little large, especially the sleeve length - I have long arms for my size and these are still way too long. Consider making the arm squares with a smaller hook.

I like the sweater but it keeps growing...probably a factor of the yarn since not a synthetic. The alpaca makes it very warm, even with the open pattern.

I was lucky to find lavender Romance yarn at Ocean State Job lot in CT last week. Now I can finally start the sweater!

I made this sweater with some modifications. I used six motifs for the front and back joining them with three rows of the arch in between and surrounding. I used three of the same motif A for each sleeve also with three row arch in between. I placed the shoulder and wrist sleeve motif on the diag with the elbow piece squared. I filled in sleeve area with the arch. I eliminated the collar all together. I was able to complete sweater for a 38" bust with one skein of yarn. I also eliminated the 5dc finishing as I did not like the way it flowed with my garmet. This is a fantastically easy pattern to accomplish and I would recommend to anyone especially those who might not have much experience but have also always wanted to make a garmet. Thumbs up Lion Brand

I have made three of this pattern. I absolutely love it! Very easy to follow and works up quickly. On the last sweater, I used the smaller blocks on the sleeves to make them not flare. I wish the Romance yarn was still available, but this could be made without much problem with a worsted weight yarn.

I made this when it first was published as a Christmas gift for my mother. She gets so many compliments whenever she wears it! I just wish that I checked my gauge closer as I don't think I made the sleevs long enough. Overall, this is fairly easy and very beautiful when completed!

This is a great pattern, relatively easy to follow. Like another review, I also had to use an N hook to obtain the guage needed.

I made a few modifications to the pattern which I feel make the sweater more appealing.

1. I used the larger motif B on the bottom of the back and front instead of the sleeves, creating a more haped tunic.

2. I wasn't fond of the joining method of "sewing". I used a modification to the arch stich to join the squares without seams. (ch 2, sc in ch 4 sp of back, ch 2 sc in ch 4 sp of front) continue to end to join pieces.

I used lion boucle with a size N hook to make this "heck of a show stopper" sweater. The pattern instructions were easy and dead on (although I did some minor adjustments since I am quite tall). The first words out of others' mouths is, "Wow! What a gorgeous sweater!"

It's absolutely beautiful. The sizing is right and is flattering even for those plus-size women!
