I really messed up the pattern half way through....but nobody but this class would know. Besides I made it unique. Since I messed up the top pattern there was no way to add the same pattern to the bottom and the sleeves. Results with the two tone turned out fairly well. Not bad for my first Icelandic sweater. Will give it another try eventually. It actually fits and looks nice so that is as Ragga would say *mistakes can be charming*. Sweater took a total of 13 days with two days of drying time in there. Thanks Ragga for a very nice class!

Your sweater is so beautiful:) Do you think a beginner could handle this project?

HI there. Thank you for your kind comment. And yes a beginner could do this. At the time I knitted this sweater I was basically a beginner. The class helped alot....even though I messed up the pattern by one stitch, which through the whole pattern out of line, it came out unique. The lopi yarn is so sticky its almost impossible to rip out when you do make a mistake. The teacher is very good at describing what you need to do from start to finish. Good luck and give it a try.
