What are you most proud of? Knitting the Swatch Hat first. I feel like I had a little refresher on Fair Isle before I begin the actual Custom Yoke Sweater. Usually I want to just jump in, both feet.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have fun with your Swatch Hat. Search out patterns and peeries that appeal to you. You just want to check your gauge and also see how the colors work together. When I finish my sweater, I'll have a little somewhat matching hat to go with it.

Beautiful!! This is how I want to swatch for my sweater. Please, are there any specific patterns for this hat, or did you "wing" it? Love it, love it, love it!!!

I really like how your swatch was done and a bonus coordinating hat!

Thanks, everyone, for the compliments. I've had a couple of false starts on my sweater. First, thought I had fixed the twist in the joining and excitedly began knitting.. Ended up having to start over. Cast on again, and my joining stitch was too loose. Going to watch that video before I try for a third time.

I love the colors of your hat, It looks great, as will the sweater!

Your hat turned out great. Did all the motifs work out evenly? I'm having a hard time finding the perfect CO amount so that all the various motifs work out evenly around the hat.
