I LOVE this! I don't remember that I thought much of it when I saw it in the magazine, but yours looks so amazing! Was it difficult? I'm always so intimidated by the patterns in Vogue Knitting.

Thank you so much for all the nice comments. I enjoyed knitting this sweater and personally didn't really think it was hard. My opinion is that vogue's patterns tend to be abbreviated at times but this pattern was pretty clear.

I only had two little setbacks so to speak while knitting this. One was that I did the back first, with it telling you to knit to a certain length. Then I did the left front which is a set number of rows in the pattern. I ended up with ten fewer rows in my back compared to the front. So I had to rip part of the back, add the 10 rows and then reknit, so that the number of rows in the front would match the number of rows for the back.

The other thing was I changed the bottom edge on the back and front so that it is like the sleeve edge. Problem was that I didn't realize for the front the way the pattern is written you cast on 5 stitches part way up to create a flap. Then, when you do the finishing you pick up stitches at the lower edge and around the front part way up and knit a garter stitch edge band to meet the lower edge of this "flap". Since I changed the lower edge I didn't have this garter stitch wrap up the front lower edge. I didn't realize that I'd have to compensate for these 5 missing stitches until I got to the row where you cast them on. So, I had to start over, casting on these 5 edge stitches right at the beginning, then of course not casting any on at the part where it tells you to. There were a few errors in the pattern too but they were easily overcome.

Other than that it went pretty easily. Thanks again for all the nice comments.
