Margaret Nock asked:

AllysonD asked:
Is this a sweater or poncho? Do you have a straight on shot of it? Having trouble visualizing!
karenclements answered:
I'm not sure if I have a straight on shot. Let me check & get back to you. It is a sweater though. The collar, bottom band & sleeve edges are in garter stitch with the main body/sleeves in a Brioche Honeycomb stitch. The sleeves in the photo are @16" from top to bottom but since it's worked top down it's easily adjusted and noted in the pattern. If I find the shot I'll post it soon. Thanks!
Robineliza36 asked:
Very nice!! Can a beginner master this?
karenclements answered:
Hi Robin, there are some more advanced techniques like using an invisible cast on and grafting. The Brioche stitch can seem hard at first but once you "get it" it goes quickly. You're also knitting flat but the collar and bottom piece are knit in the round. Not sure your level of beginner but maybe if you're an advanced beginner, there are certainly lots of techniques in this one to challenge you. Hope this helps!
