This one is my absolute fave and makes me want to take the class. What were your personal additions? Just the crochet edging, or is there more you did to make this your own?

Thanks, Leyali! I just added a few rows of the yoke pattern on the cuff and casted off the sleeves with orange yarn to match the neckline. This is another color version shown in the class. I casted on with orange yarn instead of the contrast color which is not suggested in the pattern. I have also added some length to the sleeves and the body. This is my first color work and I was really pleased to have enrolled this class, I highly recommend it. I was lucky that it was on discount when I enrolled it.
