Review by Carolyn Lynett

I made this sweater a couple of years ago and I love it! I made it in Mission Falls 1824 and it is like wearing a warm, comfy blanket. The sweater is quite heavy and I actually wear it as a jacket. The pattern is somewhat challenging but that is what I liked about it. I don''t recall any errors or major difficulties with the pattern. I am a larger woman and I "knit to fit". The sweater fits great. It may make me look larger than I am because of the bulk, but I don''t care. I will probably post a photo of it on ravelry in the next few days. Good luck!
