    Actually I would never make this – too complicated, but am glad you like it.

    This is a beautiful pattern, I’d love to give it a go, but I can’t face the idea of 156 sts!

    I was looking at this pattern to investigate the sleeves for another sweater that I’m planning to knit that I really want to add these pleated sleeves to. I took a closer look at the pattern at the yoke and I know it looks complicated but I realized that I made a hat with this same pattern. Once you get it down it’s not that complicated but it looks so fancy. I might have to make this sweater too now, just have to do the math to size it up from a 34 to a 40 tall.
