What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you've never tried the Peruvian/Andean/Portugese knitting style, I encourage you to do so. It's done by tensioning the yarn around the neck or knitting pin and working in the round on the inside of the garment, purling every row. Purling in this style is ridiculously easy and involves just a simple flick of the left thumb. Also, the yarn pretty much strands itself. My pattern is on sale in my Craftsy knitting pattern store.
