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.
Found this free pattern via ravelry then directed to biscotti site. I'm not very IT savvy and hardly ever buy online. It took me a little while to work my way round the site, but the pattern came through exactly as requested and I am happy with it. I get a fair few marketing emails now but don't really mind that - who knows, I may even buy something one day!
