Shawl Collar Sweater Reviewed by Evelyn M Buffone on 2010-06-04 ****
Beautiful sweater, but as a couple of others have mentioned, the collar is too bulky. The collar makes it a bit too warm around the neck, and if you don't like scratchy stuff, the bulkiness could make it uncomfortable. I made my version with full length sleeves and made it a bit longer, too.

I, too, get lots of compliments on this sweater when I wear it.
