Here is what the sweater looks like thus far. It took a while to get the groove of the pattern but you can see it here and I am happy with the way it is looking. I did not realize it had the V in the back bottom and the photo shows it a bit exaggerated. The pattern calls for decreases every few centimeters in length to make it a bit more taylored and less boxy looking. I have completed all the decreases and am now starting the gradual increases again. Overall I am pleased so far and will keep you posted. The yarn knits up very soft and should be comfortable to wear.
