I loved this pattern when I first saw it because of the herringbone stitch, which has so much definition and texture. I had worked about three inches before I realized that I had been doing the herringbone stitch incorrecty, so I ripped out all my work and started again. I thought the provisional cast-on for the sleeves was sort of a pain, but the finished project looks great and makes the extra effort worthwhile. The sweater is more oversized than I thought it would be (lots of length so it's more like a tunic), but it’s cozy and warm. I love how it turned out and hope I have the chance to wear it before summer arrives!
