I had so much fun knitting this sweater for my daughter a few months ago. It was my first turtleneck top-down project so I feel happy with the result. I am not a great knitter even though I have knitted for decades - and I am challenged when it comes to reading patterns. So in my "knitting life" I have kept projects simple and also made up many of my owns patterns.
For this turtleneck sweater I used a pattern from Petitknit called Caramel Sweater. It was my first time using a Petitknit pattern and found it pretty easy to use. They have some helpful and simple videos that explains knitting terms that I needed help with.
Because I am an experienced knitter I felt comfortable straying slightly from yarn recommendation in the pattern and did some slight altering of the sleeves to make them increase faster.
