What are you most proud of? I redesigned the chart and did not test knit it, so it was a total surprise to watch it evolve successfully as I knitted, especially since I have never done colorwork like this. It looks much more exciting than I expected! Adding 2 extra purl stitches to the steek area and needle felting those stitches worked like I hoped and created a felted selvedge, securing all loose ends.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch the videos carefully and many times if you are not sure of a technique. I am so glad I purchased this course I have learned so many new things that I now can apply to other garments I plan to knit.
