What are you most proud of? I like the sequin part to the sweater. It makes it very glitzy for the holidays. This is the first sweater I attempted to make button holes. The length between the button holes are a little off in my sweater. I suggest you count the rows between each button hole to better determine the length between each one. Directions says every 2 inches, but harder to determine exactly.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? The sweater is very fragile if you use a size 10 knitting needle. You may want to use a smaller needle for tighter stitches. If you do use a smaller needle for the body, also, use a needle two times smaller for the ribbing for neck, arms and bottom of sweater.
