Love this sweater. Really easy to make. Have made it in multiple yarn types. Always comes out great. Am currently making it in Vanna's Glamour with 2 strands knit together.

I love this pattern. I made it with cotton ease yarn and added black buttons to be able to close it. This was my first attempt at anything besides scarves, blankets and accessories like gloves and hats and I was surprised to find how easy it was. I liked that as I was making it, once the arm holes were placed, I could try it on to see how long it was since it is worked from the top down. Great easy pattern!

This was a great pattern. I didn't use the yarn called for since I was trying to use up my stash before buying more yarn. The yarn I used was a similar weight but a cotton/acrylic blend. I found the instructions easy to follow, and I chose the size based on what would fit my bust size. I had no problems with it being too big.

I found the instructions quite easy to follow. The techniques used include basic stitches with some ribbing and yarn overs thrown in. I enjoyed knitting it, and I'll probably be making another one soon. This time I'll pick out a pretty color from the LB website and order just what I want.

I used the recommended yarn for this patter. The yarn splits which makes it a pain to knit with. I knit a guage and then proceeded to knit the sweater. The sweater turned out HUGE. I will have to give it away.
I do not recommend this pattern

I can't seem to get the counts right, or keeping it marked. I'm fairly new to knitting, but I've done sweaters, socks, fingerless glove, you name it, and even when I do the math the numbers don't add up right for me.... very frustrated!

We don't usually knit from the top down over here in Britain, so this made a nice change. Very,very easy to do and endless possibilies for personalising it. I used aran weight cotton, which already had a twist in it, so did double twist ribs and then let the cotton do the rest - very plain and very nice. The only down side is that you really need a kilt pin or brooch for the neck as it doesn't sit quite right if you leave it open.

I made this sweater and love it.Next time I'll put cables down the front...I have made it with the butterfly stitch and it looks great.

I just finished my second sweater. My daughter BORROWED my first one if you know what I mean. I will make more. It is so cute and versatile. I give it a 10 not just a 5 star. Lillian

Great pattern to make. Don't be intimidated by the "intermediate" skill rating! It's not that hard; in fact it is fun! Since the sweater does not close, consider going down a size, otherwise there is a lot of extra bulk around the middle. It has a very boxy construction (which is cute) but if you make the "normal" size which you would make for a pullover which would allow for a few inches of ease, you will end up with too much bulk.
