Another birthday sweater

I designed this sweater for my mother-in-law for her birthday. I was unable to get very good pictures of it, but I still wanted to post it here.

I don't even know yet if it fits her, but she loved it. I wanted to get a picture of her wearing it, but I forgot. Anyway, The yarn I used is from Elann. It is a worsted weight superwash wool. The sweater was constructed seamlessly from the bottom up. The sleeves were worked separately, from the bottom up, and then joined to the body. The yoke features small plait cables with the decreases in the purl stitches to form the circular yoke. The pattern I used for the body is a modification of Barbara Walker's rib and braid pattern.
