Another post which expanded so much it has become unwieldy and I have divided it in two :
A. Main topics on difficulty and practising :
– the same garment feature, such as a neckline or sleeve, can be made using several different techniques which are at different levels of difficulty.
– some suggestions for practising.

3. Make making easier – levels of difficulty, suggestions for practising.
Moving on from the basics
4. Variations (there was originally a section on this in the cut-on sleeve posts (see below), but it became very long and widened to cover changing more styles) :
Variations A : change style elements.
Variations B : from pullover to open front.
Variations C : using your fibre-arts skills
