Fantastic job! I made one in black not too long ago, and ended up ripping it out. All the nice leafy lace parts looked like blobs in black. Just a cautionary tale.

Did you do the midwaist graft? It looks fantastic. I am definitely going to make another one in green. They are so fast!

I love this sweater and yours looks great! Did you have to make modifications to accomodate the differently-gauged yarn? I cannot find yarn that knits to the correct gauge for this pattern so I'm wondering how hard it would be to substitute yarn of a different gauge.

Thanks ultraviolet!  I did have to modify all the numbers as I got a different gauge.  I wrote more about it on my blog here (waaay back when I started) http://www.pieknits.com/blog/

I also had a different row gauge- so needed to take that into account for the raglan sleeves.   Totally doable though! Smiley
