People asked, so here are close-ups. Tim, I was using the fish pin you made for me to hold the sweater closed. I do love that pin!
And I also added a belt. But without belt and pin, here it is.
Elbow length cuffed sleeve. I wanted this sweater for warmth, but sleeves get in my way some times. A seed stitch cuff doesn't curl, adds a bit of eye-catching bulk (anything that draws the eye away from my hips is good) and blends the yarns nicely.
I knit it vertically in garter stitch, then seamed the shoulders, opened side vents and armholes, picked up and knitted sleeves, and finally added the eye-catching horizontal center panel. Thick and purple and wooly-warm. It still needs pockets, though.
