Skills:
I would consider this an adventurous beginner pattern because it is mostly stockinette with some lacework on the front segment. There are all kinds of tutorials on youtube demonstrating the different techniques used, and you are always welcome to ask me if you have questions! Techniques include: Casting on, binding off, knit front/back (kfb), slip-slip-knit (ssk), yarn over (yo), knit 2 together (k2tog), knit 3 together (k3tog)

Pattern Style:
Written instructions, lace section both written and charted
Included are suggestions for modifying both body and sleeve length and shape to get a style you are happy with!
