Here are some details about my project:

Nerves of Steel on

What materials did you use? Lettlopi from Carreg Yarns in the UK

What are you most proud of? I'm most proud of the steek and the ribbon I sewed inside the sewn edge. I think it looks really nice. I wear it such a lot.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't fear the steeking! Watch Raga do it and have a go. I'd recommend the the Istex pattern books too, you can use Raga's methods there, they are great

Beautiful! I love your choice of colors! Did you have any issues with your sizing - underarms in particular?

Hi Papercraftlady, thank you for your compliment! This is my favourite cardigan. I didn't have any sizing issues actually, the best bit about the top down construction was I could keep trying it on till I got the sleeves the right length. Did you have some problems?
