What size are you? I tried to do this with DK weight and could not get the right size. I'm just average, medium sized. I love this sweater and the other one you did. Awesome!

I am sorry I did not see and respond to your question before you finished your project. No time to knit till now:) The grey/blue sweater was intentionally created for a busty woman with a smaller waist. Size Large I guess. I added an extra panel in the middle to allow for more room.

Beautiful! I am using your grey free form sweater as an inspiration for my first free form long sleeved! Absolutely magnificent!

Oh thank-you for the nice comment. You will have so much fun with the free form, it is so rewarding to create your own patten. I can't wait to see your pictures of your finished project.
