What advice would you give someone starting this project? Several Craftsy courses helped in completing this sweater. The Perfect Seamless Crazy Lace Sweater gave me the starting point for the bodice and neckline. The Short Rows course helped expand the band button below the waist. The Fair Isle Vest course taught the technique used in the lower portion of the sweater. The Top Down Icelandic Sweater course taught me how to do the steek with a single purl (this yarn wasn't the best candidate for this type of steeking). The button closures used in the Top Down Icelandic Sweater course will be used when I find the ideal buttons for this sweater.

That is really pretty, great job! Also, I loved how you incorporated the skills you obtained from the various courses to design a unique sweater.

Thanks. I finished the intarsia class last week and it taught me how to combine intarsia with fair isle. It specifically mentioned the mistake I made when adding the center block of beige in the upper back. I wish I had enrolled in the intarsia class sooner :-)

Very nice! I am so impressed that you took things you learned in many classes and put them together to make one unique sweater that you designed on your own. Quite fantastic. You should be proud, I bet you get many compliments when you wear this sweater!
