What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use interchangeable needles as suggested, keep your tension consistent; when patterning, count stitches on the return rows. I've knit lace before and have even done some sweaters, but always used someone else's stitch count and directions. This course lets you understand where the numbers are coming from so you can create your own design that will fit your measurements. Enjoy the process!

Lovely. I'm knitting this too, but not sure mine will look as nice; we'll see.

Beautiful.... it's tempting me to try it!

You should, it's a really nice way to understand raglan construction so you can make more with just about any yarn you have.

Thanks, Even if you don't want a short sweater, this class teaches you how to measure so you can make any raglan cardigan to fit you..

Your cardigan made me buy the class! It's really gorgeous.

The great thing is learning how to create a pattern for your size, using your measurements instead of needing to use someone elses. Now I can make a sweater that really fits me and they really do work up quickly.
