What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't try to change your stitch and row gauge if you are new to knitting (unless you're awesome at math).

Your sweater is amazing. . . Now I want to make it. My Dad is a sailor and my Husband and fisherman. . . I can't imagine a better sweater for the two best guys in my life! Where did you find the motifs?

Thanks :) This does sound right up your alley! I just made up the motifs, but there's a rough pattern here: I tried to fit these motifs into Amy Detjen's Custom Yoke Sweater class pattern. Depending on your size/gauge, you might have to alter the pattern by a few stitches to make it bigger/smaller.

This pattern is available in Amy Detjen's Craftsy class: Custom Yoke Sweater. It's a great class!

Looks great! and it's your first AND you created the design. Give yourself a good pat on the back.
