What are you most proud of? The garter stitch button band that I added shows frames the beautiful yoke -- I like that very much.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Check your sleeve length. I had to add 2.5 stitches to my sleeves.

Your sweater is lovely. Is that actually Lopi wool? Great color choices. What did you do for the button band -- did you use the ribbon inside?

04/11/2013 Flag

Yes, it's Lett Lopi that I ordered from Webs. I did not use the ribbon inside the button band. I used two size 4 DP needles. Case on 6 sts. and attached the band as I knit it. I attached it directly to the crocheted steek, but skipped every third stitch as I attached the band so that it wouldn't ruffle. Hope that helps!
