What are you most proud of? I caught and fixed a couple of mistakes. I have a finished cardigan and am enjoying wearing it.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I used the note taking feature as I watched Amy's class before I would begin a new cardigan section. Made referencing much easier. My swatch came out on gauge, but I had to purchase an extra skein to complete the 8" collar and button bands. I made the size 1x.

This is inspirational -- it looks professionally made! Did you block it after you finished? It looks so smooth and flat.

Can this be converted into a man's cardigan?
