What was your inspiration?
I loved the idea of having a asymmetric neckline with a decorative button. The color change was something I though would look great and was not planned.
The sweater is named after my sister in law who is also the model. I just knew when I was making it that it would look great on her!
What are you most proud of?
I love the charts in this pattern and I also love the available sizes.

What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Always do a gauge swatch and it is very important that you do a blocked gauge for anything you make with lace. Since lace opens after you block it you want to make sure you do not accidentally make it too big!
