What are you most proud of? Not afraid of stranded knitting any more! The sweater fits my long waist and short arms!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be afraid of practicing with watching until you get the colors you want. Use the formulas to get the right fit.

Creative! I love the fit you achieved. Thank you for posting a picture of you wearing the sweater. I'm getting ready to start knitting and my hips are bigger than my bust. So i am concerned about using my bust as the largest width measurement. Do you have any tips to share on the fit you achieved? Thank you!

Amy's instructions on using your gauge swatch and some easy math really helped me get the fit. This sweater design is already cinched in the middle for fit. Check out all the dimensions of the sweater and your own. You may be surprised that it will fit nicely already. Have fun!
