This is my first time I have knitted a top down sweater and the instructions are very clear and easy to follow. I am now knitting the first sleeve, it’s looking great. Thank you.
Knitted in hand spun alpaca.
Thank you so much for these easy to read patterns. Can t wait to do them all
I have been enjoying the pattern very much. I am half-way down the body of the sweater. The pattern is very well written. The colorwork was fun to do, but I had to practice catching my floats on the beginning and ending rows of the colorwork.
The pattern is easy to follow, just as well as it’s my first time with circular needles. Not finished it yet as I’m still spinning the wool! Thank you.
It was my first project with circular needles and this pattern made it so easy. The instructions, once you get handle with the english abbreviations, are very clear and the sizing accurate. I'm still working on it, but the result is really wonderful by now. Thank you so much, I'll repeat!
