The Perfect Fit Seamless Crazy Lace Cardigan »
InstructionsI followed Myra's pattern for "Belle Plume" making only two minor modifications: 1. I decreased every 4th row on the front edges, instead of every other row; 2. I made the sleeves longer, decreasing every 5 rows or so to make a more slim fitting 3/4 length sleeve.

Making the sweater to fit me
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Make sure you're happy with your gauge swatch. I wasn't absolutely sure if I liked the look of my stitches, but I started anyway. I got almost finished with the project and realized I didn't like how it looked. So, I frogged it and went down a needle size. (That's when I decided to decrease the fronts at a slower rate, as well.) At this point I knew I was on track. Now I love my sweater. We all want to make something we can be proud of.
This is such a great class! Thanks, Myra.
