The pattern is clearly written. I like the bold sub-titles making it easy to find sizes/instructions as you progress. I like that the pattern has multiple sizes (XS-4XL) and has a recommended wearing ease. I especially like that stitch counts are provided frequently throughout the instructions. I'm enjoying knitting this pattern and can't wait to finish and wear the finished sweater.
I loved the way the colors work around the yoke.
I am in the process of knitting this sweater. The pattern is well written with plenty of size options. It is ambitious for a first stranded knit since it uses three colors in the same row, but it's been a fun challenge. I would recommend going up a needle size for the color work. The charts are very clear and easy to follow.
