What advice would you give someone starting this project? The Brioche Honeycomb stitch at first seems daunting but once you get the hang of it it works up quickly!

Hi, good to hear you are back to knitting! If you do try this pattern please let me know I can give you some tips for a beginner to make it a bit easier. In regards to alpaca yarn, make sure you use a blend. 100% alpaca is so heavy and has a real drag to it so your sweater will really grow. The yarn I used is a 50/50 blend of wool and alpaca and it's on the heavy side, but it's held it's shape well. Hope this helps! Karen

Out of all your projects, I have to say, this one is my absolute favorite. Please, please, share the pattern with me, if you do not mind. My email address is j2cool_2@yahoo.com Thank you. I had also ask for the pattern for Magnus Reversible Vest but forgot to include my email in that post; sorry.
