What are you most proud of? I love that it is super simple without losing the style. This has been one of my most popular sweater patterns and people will purchase the Bijou Basin Ranch yarn to make it since it doesn't take too much! It is SO WORTH IT!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Block your swatch because when you block lace it opens up and gets bigger. If you don't plan for that your piece will be too big when you are finished.

I love this! Have you ever added sleeves to it? I think I might try that as well.
