A great project with a fun stitch pattern. The design is very easy to customize so I used lighter yarn and short sleeves for an airy warm weather version. The lace weight yarn did slow me down a bit. (along with some major life crises)

This was a test knit for designer, Kay Hopkins who was very helpful and receptive during this process and is always available in her group.

Notes to self: continued lattice to 5 inches under arm hole, used optional waist shaping from that point with second color in stst -- did not change color or return to lattice pattern. Did not go down a needle size on bottom or sleeve ribbing. Added two charts of the lattice to the sleeves before the ribbing.
