Here are some details about my project:
Category Knitting
Style Traditional

What materials did you use? Lion Brand worsted weight Wool-Ease

What are you most proud of? That I was able to customize the police hat to match the type worn by her department, and change the lettering on the shield to say her dept. The difficulty level is high only if you are not familiar with doing duplicate stitch designs.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I did all the background sections and cabled strips first. IF i were to do it again, I would complete the background and duplicate stitch design on each section separately. One thing I like about this pattern is that because of the sections, it is quite portable to work on. I did the motorcycle design while on a trip through Europe.

No this was not intarsia.. all the design was done in duplicate stitch after the backgrounds were knit.
