Spring Leaves

Project Description

What are you most proud of? This has been my most time-consuming design so far without question. I spent a lot of time designing the yoke - the solution I came up with seems so logical now that it's ready but to get there, I redesigned and reknitted the yoke 4 times and the whole sweater twice... However, it was all worth it because it looks exactly the way I wanted :) What advice would you give someone starting this project? Read the instructions carefully. It's not difficult to work you just have to follow the directions, especially when you get to the yoke. Testers of the pattern wrote that it wasn't hard to knit but they had to pay attention as it was not the usual way to increase and decrease (not the stitches, they are p2tog-s and p3tog-s, it's rather their placement that may be a bit unusual). However, you won't get bored while working this project for sure, it really is fun :)

This is an awesome sweater, usually I don't care for items that are done in green; however this is truly beautiful. The color green is perfect and I really want to make it.
