What materials did you use? Light Weight and Light to Mid weight fabric and of course the Paco Bean Scarf Neck Cardigan pattern (the best cardigan pattern around!)

What are you most proud of? This is the first time I made an item that had princess seams and I am so proud of how beautifully they turned out.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I have made two of these cardigans now: the first in a size medium and the second in a size small. For the first one I made, the knit I used was less stretchy and my sizing varies (sometimes I am a small and sometimes a medium). So to be on the safe side, I went with the bigger size. It fits wonderfully, but I could have probably gotten away with the small. However, this knit was very thin, so I wanted enough room to wear long sleeves. For my second one, the knit I used had much more stretch, so I made a small. It fits perfect! So bottom-line, I suggest if you are in-between sizes or your size varies, go with the bigger size for knits with less stretch and the smaller size for knits with lots of stretch. And keep in mind if you want it to be more fitted or more loose. And that is what is great about it; you can make whatever size you want! You are not limited by what size is still left on the rack. :)
