FO - "Burberry Inspired" Chihuahua Sweater
This was my first attempt at Intarsia. I would not recommend that newbies try plaid. I almost burned the needles, threw the yarn out the window and killed myself. But it turned out really well and was definitely a learning experience. Next time I'll cheat and do the tiny vertical stripes when it is done!

Here is the link to the general chihuahua sweater pattern I started with. The plaid I made up, and I have since changed the general pattern many times. I just make it up as I go now!

Well, your frustration paid off 'cause that is *gorgeous*!!! Very nice work.

Having done a small amount of Intarsia, myself, I can understand what a challenge that must have been!
