This was my first attempt at a Lekala pattern. Unfortunately the instructions were in Cyrillic and Google Translate was pretty useless, so I had to wing it when it came to putting the top together. Never having done a twisted-neck top before, it was quite a brain teaser. Other than this the pattern worked perfectly and fit perfectly first time. The only changes I made were cutting the front on the diagonal to get the chevron look, and leaving off the sleeves.
