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!
received the pattern quickly, I can't wait to start the project
The pattern seems easy to follow and plan on making it soon thanks
