What are you most proud of? When I finished the cardigan, I added a button band. It was first time I had added a button band. When I realized the cardigan was too short. I ripped out the button band and added about three more inches to the length then added an even nicer button band.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I would use a yarn that has multiple plys. Chroma is a single ply yarn and it pills very quickly. I had worn it maybe three times when I notices the formation of pills on the sweater.

I like the plain sleeves and the way you returned to stockinette below the lace - the seed stitch edging fits well into the overall design as a result! Nice colors too.
