EDIT : The pattern is released

Custom projet for myself. Home made pattern.

I wanted to play with colors.

I used all the yarn, even had to change my plans for the sleeves : I wanted just a few stripes at the elbow, but since I did not have enough grey yarn to finish the sleeves, I had to place them lower and do much more stripes.

All waist and hips increase and decrease are made in front and in back (rather than at the sides of the body).

Knitted from top to down, with set in sleeves. The bottom is made with a double layer, to avoid big ribs like Amy Herzog advices for my body shape. Also I did put the lighter color on the top, to artificially try to broaden the shoulders ;)
