Notes

This was my first knitted sweater project! Thankfully, I was given some notes as I worked through the pattern with my knitting guild about areas where I could’ve easily made mistakes (picking up to knit the sleeves, binding off ribbing too tightly so that the stretch of the ribbing is compromised).

The most difficult part of the pattern for me was when I had to pick up all the stitches to knit the collar/ribbing around the entire front edge. It took me a couple of hours to get it right, but I felt good about the spacing and triple checked my stitch count.

As I wrapped up the project I noticed a few mistakes, but overall I’m more than pleased with my first sweater!
