What are you most proud of? That I was able to change a too loose neckline into a nice fitting collar.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you see a pattern you like, you can always use the stitch pattern using your own measurements and the worksheets to make your own. To avoid "holes" at the raglan seams, I used a M1R and M1L increase rather than a yarn-over. Also, don't be afraid to go several sizes of needle to do a snugger ribbing. Unless you want loose ribbing at the cuffs, collar and lower band, you'll be pleased with the results,

I'm a cardigan girl so always on the look out for new ideas. Love your modifications to the top down lace cardi. Thanks for sharing. Think I'll give it a try.

Did start with the collar or add it afterwards?

The collar was added afterwards. I began the pattern just like it was instructed.
