Well, here's my version.
I've been working on it since fall, and had all the work done on it at the beginning of winter. I *finally* blocked it, wove in all the ends, and put buttons on it. I wish I had done it sooner - it is now my favorite sweater!

I'm really impressed. Did you design that just based on pictures?
Well, I used the Sweater Wizard software to draft the pattern for the knitted part, but I had to change it a lot because I wanted to knit it all in one piece (I detest sewing seams!), and I wanted the neckline shaping to be smoother than on-edge shaping. Once that was done, I just sort of winged it with the crochet. I manage to get 3 good snaps from the movie to look at, but once I started crocheting, I just went with it and didn't look at the photos anymore.

It's projects like this that make me realize why so many crocheters don't read patterns - I couldn't have written this into a pattern, even if I wanted to!
JEALOUS!!! i have wanted that sweater since i first saw the movie, but i am soooooo not a knitter

ETA: heeeey you're mehndi mama! i remember you from waaaaaay back, talking to you about henna belly art when i thought i was pg once before--your hyenacart shop is so cool!!!
