When I finished my first scarf and went looking for a sweater to do, this is what I picked. Then we found something simpler, but I bought this pattern anyway. I'm glad I didn't do it then, because I can tell this pattern will require more confidence, and more even tension throughout. It would have made me cry. A lot.
Maybe it still will, but I'm up to it, now! And besides, I can start with the tank, and see how it goes. No sleeves!
