What was your inspiration?
In this sweater, the yarn came before the design. I had hand dyed a batch of Blue Faced Leichester yarn in a very limited amount and wanted to make something small to show it off.
What are you most proud of?
Making a pattern that looks great on a range of sizes & body types.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Try switching to a smaller needle to knit the neckline trim.
