What are you most proud of? My first steek - scary, but successful. It is a technique that I'll definitely use again.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be sure to test the crochet chain edge on the sweater and if it ripples, use a smaller hook until it lies flat. No hook size is given, but the one I used was much smaller than the knitting needles. That really surprised me.

Fabulous outcome, really flattering and I am so happy you posted such informative pictures!

Happy to help! I know how disappointing it can be to want details and not be able to see them on the pictures. I do wish the zipper detail was a bit clearer, but my Ravelry project page has more details than I could put in here. I'm KarenBPike over there if you want to have a look.

Thanks so much... that sweater inspired me to knit another one that I'm entering in a design competition.
