Oh Great Knitting Gurus: is this pattern REALLY for intermediate knitters, in your expert opinions?? It looks severely hard to me.

Thanks in advance!

Well the pattern on the front suggests that it has intrasia~ which is the color blocking. The v neck implies decreases and increases~~ can you do those?

I agree, it's likely the intarsia that makes it intermediate.

OK, well I thought that intarsia was HARDER than intermediate. Have you guys done argyle? I thought you have to do a bunch of stuff you know to make the color blocks come out even, and to add that extra line at the exact angle.

I think (though I may be wrong) that often the thin lines that go through the diamonds are done afterward by duplicate stitch.
