New jumper

Forgot to actually show a picture of my finished jumper!


It's knit with some bamboo/acrylic mix from Lidl and is quite heavy now it's finished. Feels nice to wear. And I love the lace.
Personally I'm not too keen on sleeve that flare out at the bottom but as these only come to my elbows they don't get in the way too much. If I was doing it again I'd cut out the flare bit.
I also had a bit of an issue with the crochet borders. The stitch count seemed way too small and pulled in the knitting too much, making it too tight. Do I just crocheted something that felt comfortable to wear and went from there. Worked out okay in the end.
