'Twas the Giveaway before Christmas...

Congratulations to last week's winner, The Yarniad!

This is the last week of the Giveaway before Christmas. Thanks to everyone for your participation.
eta: a very good question was asked of me re: how winners are picked. I use the lovely Random Number Generator on the interwebs. People are assigned a number in the order in which they responded to the question, and the Generator does the rest!
___________________________
Last week before Christmas and one item remains,
only one question this rhymey contains!

1) Do you want this sweater?
Photobucket

sweater details:
measures
waist - 14"
hips - 17"
bust - 17"

reason I'm giving it away: it's just a touch too big for me liking.

...and here's what else you'll get:
Photobucket
-one ball of Knit Picks Elegance (in same yarn and colour as in sweater)
-two hanks of Knit Picks Shimmer

Thank you to everyone and good luck!

I love love love that sweater. It is my colours and I love it.

BUT - with a 38 inch bust, I don't think it will fit me.

And it is too big for you. Only the Christmas spirit prevents me from telling you my thoughts on that. Ha Ha.

Can you tell me what pattern it is, so I can make a bigger! version.
