What advice would you give someone starting this project? I tried to knit this sweater 3 times before I got it on my 4th attempt. hint- only increase in the yoke where it says make 1. I thought it meant make one in every row and ended up with over 400 stitches... oops.. =0 but I finally got it... =)

I am nearly done the main body with the steeking stitch in the center. I am already thinking ahead to trying another one as a pullover. I haven't looked closely at the pattern, but I am wondering if you simply eliminated the steeking purl stitch and continued in the round for your pullover. It's lovely by the way!

Your rendition is lovely - wasn't this project a fun knit? Think I want to knit another in very different colors...

Thank you. Yes, it was fun. I need to try the cardigan next though.
