What are you most proud of? I'm really proud of the fit on this pattern. I love the way the honeycomb stretches to fit with some negative ease and I like the the sleeves are relatively fitted as well. I think this sweater looks like something you'd find in an upscale boutique.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take a little time to swatch the honeycomb stitch. The yoke pattern is written out row for row, but it's still helpful if you understand how the pattern progresses (and it's essential to swatch and measure your gauge anyway!)

A lovely sweater on a beautiful model! I love the green and pink combination. The smocked look to the bodice and upper back is stylish. The choice of pink buttons is unexpected and works well. Good job! And a pat on the back (and a hug) for the model!! :)
