Good grief, I made so many mistakes with this... I crocheted around the steek the wrong way round, I stranded the yarn on the yoke too tightly, I ended up with a different pattern on the hem ribbing and the cuff ribbing, I knit the 36" chest to fit my 35" chest but it came out too tight, the buttoned cardigan is very gappy... But I've learned so much doing this class, now I have the confidence to try another lopapeysa - and hopefully I will learn from my many mistakes! :)

For all that, it looks great! I actually like the neckline in yours very much, it even looks intentional! Thanks for sharing!
