Byzantine Bazic Sweater Review by Ashley Clark

I purchased this pattern hoping for a difficult pattern, and I was not disappointed. I love this pattern for the cable work, plus the fact that the back side is not just k the k and p the p. I used different yarn than suggested, but the overall product was perfect, including the color. There will be at least three of these in my wardrobe. Cables are the best for they make the sweater thicker, especially for Montana winters. Thanks to all who made this pattern possible.
