I really enjoyed knitting this sweater! I knitted the body while on my Alaska cruise. I liked knitting the bolero shape back and forth on the ciruclar and adding decreases every 6 rows. And I loved knitting the sleeves in the round from the bottom up! Now when I look at sweater patterns, the first thing I check for is if the sleeves are knitted in the round. The only pattern variations I made were to add some length to the sleeves and to have two buttons instead of one. There are more pictures here.

Congratulations on a lovely sweater! Not only do I really like the two button version of this sweater, but I think your choice of button was inspired!
