What was your inspiration?
I had the yarn and wanted to try a chevron pattern. So many people have asked how I made it that I thought it easiest to post it here to share. My son LOVES this and kept trying to steal it when I was making it. He wouldn't pose with both on at the same time but he loved the set. I'm thinking of trying a mitten set to match.
What are you most proud of?
I love how this project turned out. It's the first time I was able to follow a pattern and have it turn out correctly.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
be prepared to weave in a lot of ends. Oh my, I hate that part!
