What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is a very good beginner project. Even people with little knitting experience, will be able to produce something wearable and nice.

I really like how you belled out the bottom. Did you double the number of stitches and increase needle sizes like Myra said for the bell sleeves? Or did you add increases on a regular basis an change the lace pattern?

I used a lace border that increased the total number of stitches, but used the same size needles. I actually 'borrowed' a lace border from a scarf and that worked well with the overall design. But I never really plan things ahead, I just go with what I think will look right at that moment.

I really like your sweater. Please share as I am purchasing this class in hopes of making this.

The belled effect in the back was created by using a different lace pattern. Some lace patterns increase instead of keeping the same stitch count. Normally you have a decrease for every increase, but if you want more increases you just eliminate some of the decreases. Garnstudio.com offers free lace pattern. I have this pattern from their site. Don't remember the name of the pattern, because it has been a while ago since I made that cardigan.
