What are you most proud of? I was very proud to publish this pattern since it was my first adult-size garment. I knew I was ready for the challenge, because I have been practicing my pattern writing and grading skills on kids garments for almost two years now, but it was still a thrill to see pictures of my test knitters in their sweaters. Every single size was test knitted, and they all fit great!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I would say that this pattern is written for an older teen or adult with a small-to-medium size chest. This neckline is on the low side and I am not confident it would be able to "hold in the ladies" if they were about a D cup or larger. If you are experienced with bust darts and are comfortable adding an inch or two to the neckline, this sweater could be modified to fit a bustier shape. But, in the way it's written, this pattern is really intended for a woman who can do sports without her chest getting in the way. :) That said, this is a pretty easy sweater. I believe that adventurous beginners can be successful with this pattern even if it is their first attempt at a sweater. This design is seamless, and almost universally flattering with it's gentle shaping and set-in-sleeves. If you decided to dive in and feel stuck, just contact me. I'm happy to help!
