What are you most proud of? I love the details in this design, I-cord bind-off, mitered corners, smocking pattern. It gives the sweater a very finished look without being fussy. What advice would you give someone starting this project? This pattern is perfect for showing off a beautiful yarn! I would stick with a solid or semi-solid color though. Don't be scared by the slightly more advanced techniques required (provisional cast-on, I-cord bind-off, etc) - they are all described in the pattern.
